Know the approximate costs of music instruments and courses before embarking on a career in music

If you love music, you have probably thought about being a professional musician. But there’s more to having a career in music than just entertaining an audience. It can take years to be a successful musician and can involve a lot of money. From instruments to training, here are some things to consider if you want a career in music. 

 

Buying your choice of instrument:

Pianos: These come in different brands and on an average, a professional piano can cost anywhere between 50,000 and 2 lakh-plus. Acoustic pianos, however, are priced even higher, while grand pianos start at around Rs. 15,000 to Rs1,50,000. 

Note: Your investment gets locked for 15 years, but you can make partial withdrawals at the end of the sixth year.  

Mid and small-cap mutual funds: These generally offer high returns; however, the average investing period is from five to 10 years.

Fixed Deposits:?This is a safe option and is best suited for short-term investments. It offers a fixed interest rate, ranging from 4% to 11% p.a. Money can be withdrawn only after maturity that comes with a term that ranges from 10 days to 10 years. Interest comes into play after three months of deposit. So, plan it ahead! 

Recurring Deposit:?It generates regular monthly income by investing small amounts in a systematic way. 

SIP:This investment method generates additional income through regular depositsThe minimum deposit for this is Rs. 500 month. Interest rates for SIPs can go over 10%, eventually earning you a significant amount each year. It is best to invest in SIPS at least 10-12 months in advance.
