I’ve always wanted a job in music, maybe as a pop star or producer (only kidding), but resigned myself a long time ago to the fact that it would never happen. I’ve been working in education for the last 12 years, and recently started doing a lot of e-learning stuff, which involves audio and video production, so thought it’s probably the nearest I’d ever get to put my music tech skills and general musical knowledge to some use. However, that may change in the near future, and I may actually get my career in music after all.
I’ve had an interview at a university where they want someone to become the e-learning subject specialist in their music library, which covers both general music stuff and music technology. They have quite a lot of professional music people teaching there, both composers and producers, so it would be an ideal chance to learn more about that side of things, and hopefully improve my own music and production skills.
Of course, a lot of you on here probably already have the ideal music career, but I’m interested in technology, music, and how the two work to not only make music but promote it too. Sounds ideal to me!
The only problem now is I have to wait to see if I’ve got the job……
