What’s the value of being a musician?

On Friday, I had a conversation with the son of a well-known percussionist in Miami. This young man’s career path was toward financial planning. His aspiration was to be a doctor, although he’d spent his youth pursuing music with his father. He’d watched quietly, while his father struggled with the disparity of income suffered by so many musicians.

Tachaka told me that, after being successful in investment banking and other financial endeavors, he realized that, if he had to do it all over again, he would have been a musician.

“It’s all B.S.,” Tachaka assured me, “but music is real!”

What do you see as the value of being a musician?
