From my own legal experience, you need to consider it from a business perspective and how you'll be making your money. Gigs? Session work? Lessons? Transcription? How will you finance albums? What royalty schemes? What shares will you get from bands? Albums? Will you look into other things like mixing, producing? How much intellectual property will you develop and how will you monetise it? Sell it, licence it? Who to and for what purposes and how? Will you create music and sell it traditionally? Fund it through crowdsourcing? Will you try your hand at making music gear and selling it? And do you have the connections and resources to make any of it happen? And how much time will you devote to work that pays upfront, versus creating a body of material for passive revenue such as royalties etc? There's a lot you could do, but no guarantees of success in any of it. You'll need to treat your passion as a business - how that affects you, none of us can say, but it's something to consider. I personally could never make music my business.
