Music Career (Ambitions)

The Sims 3 Ambitions Walkthrough and Guide by CMBF  
 
 
 



Music Career (Ambitions)

This is another of the careers that splits midway through having two paths -- Electric Rock and Symphonic -- so you can go with the modern or the classic and still be a happy camper!  Obviously it involves spending a lot of time playing instruments, and that takes discipline for sure, but the pay-off is the absolute adoration of your fans!

Now you may notice that the money here is pretty bad...  It is almost as if you know, everyone wants to be this and at the lower levels so many wannabe's are in the biz that will work for peanuts just for a shot at... wait...  Oh!  Seriously though, yeah, the money is not great, so you should really think of this more as the two years you spent after college in a band before sitting down to find your real career, right?

Helpful Traits:  Ambitious, Artistic, Charismatic, Friendly, Genius, Schmoozer, Virtuoso

Associated Lifetime Wishes: Hit Movie Composer / Rock Star
