I came across a fantastic article today on ‘Income Sources for Musicians’ and thought this would be great for anybody learning guitar to read. You can read the article here.
You probably have your own reasons for learning guitar but (if you’re like I was) probably haven’t thought too much about where it can lead you. Many people start learning an instrument with the dream of being rich and famous. While some people will get there, many won’t. But the good news is there are many different ways you can make a career out of playing guitar. As the article explains, you have many options from teaching to working as a freelance musician. The point is that down the road your hobby can turn into something much more if you want it to.
I started off learning guitar with the aim to be in a successful band and ended up as a teacher (and happy to be one). So if you ever feel doubt about where guitar can lead you, remember there are so many possibilities out there.
