Most people when asked to provide career advice, will probably say “pursue your passions.”
I think that’s great advice.
It’s like saying “find a job you’ll love and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
Music is one of those careers.
But most people think that the only career in music worth having, is being a musician, composer or singer.
Despite what you see on the Voice and the like, there actually is no fast track to success. Pursuing that passion take a lot of guts, being broke and a healthy dose of determination.
So here’s something else to think about when you think about a career in music.
Today’s guest post comes from Scott Rojko. One of the hats he wears is that of Sales and Marketing Director of MWT Institute, a training provider specialising in music, business and finance.
Scott is about to present you with four careers in music, that don’t involve banging a set of paint drums in Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall 😉

I am back in not so sunny Melbourne, feeling slightly depressed about all the grey skies and chilly air.
I’m now on the normal number 0439 595 687 and the usual firstname.lastname@example.org.
I had a fabulous time and wanted to do a quick public shout out to a few people who made my trip tops.
Firstly, if you’re looking for a trip to India, or you’re a yoga teacher wanting to organise a retreat, I suggest you contact the lovely Meredith Wilks from Tiwari Travel.

Well, I finally achieved one of the biggest goals I had when I set up my business – that being to work any place, any time and anywhere there’s half a decent internet connection.
Now I’m here.
I decided to say goodbye to the early start of Melbourne’s chilly winter and head across to Bali to work here for a few weeks.

It’s a cute little place.
Imagine a setting somewhere between the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, meets the Melrose Place apartment layout of the 80’s.
