    Ok, well I have been Drum Major for my high school marching band since my Junior Year.
    I just went to solo/ensemble this weekend and received a first division for my Tuba solo which I had to learn. I have received 1st since my Sophomore year. I am pretty sure I can go somewhere with this other than the shift manager at Arbys. Any ideas?

    Drum Major: leads marching bands, conducts during games and practices.

    Justin, well done on having a job at the moment, that is an achievement, in these difficult times. Are you considering looking for a new full time job?

    Are there any particular fields or types of jobs that interest you?

    Thanks, I thought so too :)

    As soon as I graduate - full time.
    Probably more into the music field more than anything else.

    Sorry Justin but I really don't have any experience of career opportunities in the music field. I would suggest that you talk to as many people as possible and ask them their opinions as to what job opportunities might be available to you. You could start by asking other people in your band, your music teacher, career guidance teacher, etc. Every time you speak to someone, ask them if they know anyone else that might be able to help you, or that you should speak to.

    Have you considered further music education, such as going to university or college to study music?

    Good luck with it.

    I will be talking to the Career Counselor and the Band Teacher when all this state testing is over.

    I am going to college, going to major in musical education.

    IF you have a passion in music and really love to pursue your career in that field, I think any kind of conflict in pursuing this will not be feel if you are really determined to do this mate. Good luck!

    Nice one Justin. You have big hopes and high dreams and it's not impossible for you achieve all of them. You just have to be very patient and determined in getting all of them for success.

    Thanks to both of you :)

    I spoke to the career counselor about possible colleges that are the best for majoring in music, and right now, I have a few in mind that I might apply to.
