    I've got work experience coming up soon and my forms were supposed to be filled in and sent off today!! :( And I really have no idea where to go, what to do or anything!! :-?

    Has anyone got any ideas on what sort of thing I could do that involves music of some kind?!

    My ambitions in a career are something along been a conductor, composer, teacher and player. But... where to go?? :-?:(

    Help me pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!!

    Thankyou xx
