Do I need to go to college for music?
No. Go to learn. But you can also learn on your own. Some people go for the wrong reasons.
Some can learn on their own. College doesn’t have a monopoly on learning.
All that matters in music is that you provide value that people want.
Alternatively there are also bootcamps for music and online courses
I’ve done a mix of the majority of learning online and the rest in person. Not that it ever ceases though!
Cre8 is a bootcamp ran through Westlake Studios in West Hollywood CA. You can see a review about that here.
