Apprenticeships vs. Online Learning In The Music Business

People ask me, “What about online learning? Is online learning good?” Yeah, online learning is pretty good. Look, classroom learning is pretty good. Nobody is saying that you can’t learn anything in a classroom. Nobody’s saying you can’t learn anything with regards to learning online.

What we’re saying is what beats both of those options is learning from a professional as an apprentice (extern). That’s what beats both classroom learning and online learning. I recommend you do both. Do a little bit of classroom work. Do some workshops. Just don’t get yourself in debt doing it. Read as much as you can.

Of course, do some online learning, but when you really are ready to be serious, be an apprentice (extern). Throw yourself into the fire and learn by doing it. And you will save $100,000 and a decade of your life. Period.
