Then comes the part where you train to be a professional musician, receive a degree in Vocal Performance & Education, and then find out you have to actually be good at it to make a living. Where after a few years of substitute teaching, you land a part-time job at the Hard Rock Cafe, where you get to look and act however you want — to embody a rock and roller — and then you find out how good you are at training, and run with it.
