Music and Business

Posted By: Dr. Frugal in Economics on 11/15/2007 at 06:47:43

According to Reuters/Yahoo, 88% of people with graduate degrees and 83% of individuals earning over $150k/year studied music.

I can confirm that in real life too--the most successful people, in terms of both wealth and prowess in their corporate skills, we're all (as far as I know) at least active in music through high school. I can tell you the real reason why too: in the business world you are rewarded for being able to come at the same problem many different ways and when you learn music, you learn to play the exact same thing many different ways. The transference is obvious. Hire musicians!
