Being a professional musician is a technical, structured disciplined activity that you have to practice and be prepared for, just like being a Project Manager for a large-scale IT project.
In my early career, I studied music at Interlochen and Johns Hopkins University, where I learned about the architecture, knowledge and technology associated with music. I discovered a lot of synergy.
Music has a language, just like technology does. Our language looks a little different than your language, but we have notation, syntax and artifacts. We have all the things that any great technology, or any other project has. And we have to learn those things to be successful.
