Re: College to study drum set and something else
You could always have a double major, one in drumming and one as an Orthopdic Surgeon. I've discovered at my age that the two share a similar bond.
Seriously though find something that intrigues you to the point where you could imagine doing it all week long if you don't become the pro musician you imagined.
