Have to Major in to be a Lyricist?

Really, you need to be very musical to begin with and hook up with those individuals who actually write music. YOU also need to be able to read music too and have an ear for it. An understanding of music is an absolute must! It isn't necessary to go to college to do this (you can either do it or you can't, no one can really teach you to be a lyricist), but of course college helps in case your dreams don't work out. Naturally, you would take many music appreciation courses in college and other courses of that type. What it pays? To be honest, the scale varies so widely there is no point in quoting pay rates. It depends where you end up (whom you end up becoming a lyricist for). This is a very narrow field and again, you need to be quite musical and have a deep knowledge and appreciation for music. If this is just some whim you thought up on spur of the moment, skip it.
