When did you know that you wanted to be a musician?
When I was 11 I learnt that my drum teacher was called a ‘Professional Musician’ and I figured that was what I wanted to do. I didn’t really think about it again until approximately 3 weeks before my university graduation recital, at which point I realised I wasn’t going to get a ‘job’ and it was probably going to be hard to make any ‘money’ and shouldn’t my parents have encouraged me to pursue something more ‘sensible’? Previously I had wanted to be an astronaut and a mechanic, and I’m hoping to develop some kind of woodworking skills in my old age.
