Ed Sheeran: ‘Don’t waste money on music degrees’
[DS]: Ed Sheeran has encouraged hopeful musicians not to waste their time and money on music colleges and universities.
Sheeran told Newsbeat that he believes degrees are not the best way to get ahead in the industry.
“If you want to be a producer then shadow a producer, start making him tea,” he advised.
“If you want to be a singer then make sure you go to a lot of shows of people you really, really admire, study how they do it. Do your own shows, work up your confidence, write as many songs as possible so each time you do a song it gets better and better and better.”
The ‘Lego House’ singer said that it is more important to start at the bottom and having the time to hone your craft.
“The main thing people get messed up is they think, ‘Right I need a degree, I’m going to go off and study music at university’.”
