I'm a junior in high school and I want to focus on playing jazz vibes in college. But iv heard there are a good amount of vibes players who studied something else in college... percussion, or piano, etc along with vibes. If I could do everything I wanted I'd just play vibes, but I also play drum set for five years on and of and I play a little piano and general percussion. It'd be great to hear some of advice from people, especially if you've been in a similar situation.
I'm really serious about playing and getting better at vibes. and I probably don't want to get a teaching degree. I just want to play!!!! Hah. I don't want to sound naive about being a musician, I know it's not easy as a career, but I'm thinking iif I love it enough it'l be worth everything.
