    So I'm currently studying graphic design at college but am wondering whether its really for me. I really like art and creating stuff but from what I can tell Graphic Design jobs are really hard to find/get into.

    Lately I've been thinking of studying something Music based at uni when/if i go. The only reason I took an Art GCSE was because there wasn't enough people who wanted to do the Music GCSE in secondary school, I did my work experience in a tiny music shop where i used to live and at the open day at college I took Music Technology. I probably would have took it if I hadn't moved away.

    I have no qualifications in anything music based (no grades or anything) but I play guitar alot but probably no more than what I draw.

    So what should I do? I'll probably finish the course I'm on now but is a career in the music industry worth it? or should i just stick to what i'm doing? Graphic design seems a cool job so it's probably just the course I'm doing that is putting me off by being boring, i guess. What kind of jobs are available for someone who's interested in music?

    (sorry for this post being so long!)
