I am at a cross roads in my life. With A levels in both math and music, I am struggling to decide which path to follow.
My heart says music. I am passionate about it and I love playing guitar and piano. I love being around other musicians and playing in bands. I would love to make a career out of music if I could, but I understand it's risky and there are no guarantee's of being able to make a decent living.
On the other hand, I am also good with numbers. My parents are pushing me towards a more academic degree. And with salaries for investment bankers reaching as much as 100k a year not including the offensively large bonuses those guys rack up, it is very tempting to chose this option.
Perhaps if I could get some work experience somewhere like Rowan Dartington it would make my decision a little easier to make. I think I would enjoy the fast paced style of the work, but I suppose I won't know unless I try.
