Your salary is connected to your taste in music
When it comes to music, everyone has their own type. Music has helped people go through some tough scenarios in life. It’s also inspired creative people in their own projects. What you listen to can also give people insight on what’s really in your wallet.
Keep It Classical
TD Ameritrade ran a poll with 1,500 millennials to determine which music genre fits with your income. They discovered that people who listen to classical music earn around $114,000 per year. Classical music, in general, isn’t as popular as every other genre in the United States.
Regardless, there’s plenty of modern day classical music composers delivering grand melodies. One of the youngest composers out there is 13-year-old Alma Deutscher. At the age of 10, she unveiled her first opera based on the story of Cinderella.
Under The Electric Sky
The music genre with the second biggest earning is EDM with $92,000 per year. This is arguably one of the biggest genres on the radio with major festivals around the world. These festivals don’t come cheap, either. Electric Daisy Carnival comes with an average ticket price of $430.
Rap ($69,000), ’80s/’90s ($67,000), hard rock ($65,000), and pop/top 40 ($61,000) find themselves between the $60,000 – $70,000 range.
I Walk The Line
The music genre with the least amount of money made is country. While $58,000 per year might not seem like a lot, it’s enough to get by for many fans.
As expected, this survey should be taken with a grain of salt. There are plenty of country fans in the world easily making six figures in their profession. On the flip side, there are classical music buffs earning $60,000 per year. In the end, it’s all about being happy with your life.
