So my parents are still sitting on the money they saved to send me to college. I was enrolled previously with absolutely NO DIRECTION and only used 20% of it before I found my own path in the music recording market. Since my move here to Phoenix, I've lost a lot of connections (in the hopes of making new ones) and in the meantime, cannot make ends meet with recording projects alone. That being said, I've been offered 'free tuition' so to speak and am honestly considering taking them up on this offer. From what I've learned in the music market, degrees can only teach you the books and show you very little in terms of experience. I've been conditioned to believe its not what you know, its WHOM you know. At least, that's how it goes down if you're trying to make bank with record deals. My parents think I would benefit from taking a real-estate class. I am not opposed to it, but my full-time job as a sound-pusher is very demanding and not paying as much as I'd like. I have the option of only a 5 day work-week as opposed to a 6 but am concerned of my time being improperly invested. I am jaded from the results of online-courses due to previous experience with them some 8 years back. If I am going to a formal course this time around, I want a GOOD teacher. Money is no object. Time IS.
Your feedback is appreciated.
