I don’t agree with those who say music can’t be a vocation. Music should never start as a ‘profession’. I have studied visual arts and it was supposed to be my profession. But I am not pursing it. Any kind of art practice is a way of life and shouldn’t really begin as a ‘profession’. At least that is how it works for me. When you think of your artistic abilities as your profession there is a certain pressure involved with it, because then you have to sell it to make a living out of it.
