23602, RE: Do You believe in High culture?

I guess I never thought of it that way. I've been in music/band/wind ensemble/ marching band since I was 9 years old. Now, I'm a month away from twenty and still playing, for churches/weddings/conferences. However, I am NOT a music major because I don't want to teach, I want to perform. There's hardly any money if you don't make it to a philharmonic! I play flute...do you know how many good flute players are out there? Secondly, if I were to teach, I would get no money either. So, I'm not sure if anyone tried to push me to be a poor music teacher or unsuccessful performer. I'm not sure that our society taught us that musicians were elite and high class. Pop music is where the money is, if you get a hit.
