This might be a stupid question, but I'm looking into audio engineering as my next career move - but I'm not sure whether I should go to school for it first. A lot of people have told me that I don't need a 'formal' education to work in the field but I feel like I would benefit greatly, as I don't have much knowledge of anything. I do however, have an incredible passion for music and this is something I've dreamed of doing since I was a kid. Any advice for this girl chasing yet another dream?

First do you have any previous experience working with music?
