Music: Why it is a Noble Profession

Music: Why it is a Noble Profession

Growing up, we tend to absorb what we hear from our surroundings, this includes our parents, schools, and other adults that we interact with, and because we look upto them, we tend to respect their opinions and say regarding different things.

So, it is safe to say that most of us have heard the same thing over the years when it comes to career options. Most of the adults we meet tell us that we have to opt for a noble career, and by noble they mean, something that makes you famous and respected.

Since most adults are conservative, their idea of a noble career is to either become a doctor, a scientist, mathematician, engineer etc. All of these traditional career options are considered to be the only important and truly respectable ones. However, if a child or adult talks about pursuing the arts as an option, then they are mocked, ridiculed and discouraged. The field is associated as something only deviants would pursue, something that serves no purpose etc. Most the time, this discouragement works, and people end up opting for more “traditional” career options instead. However, that doesn’t have to be the case.

Money doesn’t have to be the end goal. Yes, life isn’t easy when you pursue the arts, but it’s so much better than doing a job you hate every single day for the rest of your life. Music isn’t meant for hippies and dropouts, music is a universal language, regardless of whether you want to play jazz, guitar, sing or sing blues etc. You just have to find a niche that suits you, polish your talent and then play. You can find a lot of clubs like the Chicago blues musicians that showcases talented blues musicians each night. So, every profession is noble, and you don’t need someone else to be telling you that what you love isn’t good enough for them.
