If I could have any job that I wanted, what would it be? And if I could use this job to change the world, how would I do it? And if it were possible for me to get this job, what would I have to do to earn it? For some people, the answer to the first question would be “Any job that earns a lot of money”. For other people, the answer would be “Any job where I have a lot of authority”. As for the second and third question, there could be many possibilities for each of these groups of people. But as for me, my dream job would be working as a professor at the Royal College of Music in London. Here I would be among some of the most talented performers of today; and I would be one of their teachers. Now you may be thinking, “How can being a simple professor of music change the world?” This can only be explained when you understand the importance of music in our world today. Music is everywhere; it is used in movies, played in restaurants, and performed all around the world. Without it, our world would not be the same. And music teachers will always be needed. Now in order to get this job, I would have to earn bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees in music. But it would be worth it to be counted as a teacher of the greatest masters of the keys.
