Hey everyone I'm new here and this is my first post. I"ve been posting my question in alot of places, and so far I haven't got the answer I'm looking for. It has been my dreams to live in Japan, I know this is random but bear with me here. I'm chinese, and I want to live in Japan and then.... I want to have a job that is in the music industry. I have been looking into Recording Engineering. I checked out some schools and the best one I"ve found so far is http://www.metalworksinstitute.com/ (I live in Canada by the way). If I were to really move to Japan and look for a job in the music industry, what kind of career will have more chances? Same for America? Canada? Recording Engineering sounds interesting, but I wanted to go to a University as I've been working hard in school. Is there anything I can do in University, come out and work in a record label? Like, are there any jobs that works with artists and bands that I can get if I graduate from a University? Like the question before, what careers are avaliable in a record label and oppotunities in Japan, America, and Canada? I intend to finish school, get some work experience in Canada, then move to Japan and fish a job there. But I've got lots of planning to do, because I don't know if it's possible at all. By the way. How are the salaries for a recording engineer? I've been wondering ever since I went to the open house for Metal Works Institute. They get paid per hour right? Around how much do they get paid, is it enough to make a living? Same for other careers in a record label. Please help, thanks !
