Your credentials are good (academic, GMAT, school), but ultimately, b-schools demand you bring something to the table from the working world. You need to think about what you have done with the past 10 years that would be of value to your classmates when analyzing a business case or breaking down a problem. Your story has some good and unusual traits (Columbia is under-represented and musicians applying to b-school are rare), but you need to tie it into a long term vision for what you hope to achieve with the MBA--wanting to study is not a good enough answer for the adcoms....they want to know what you plan to achieve and why, also how what you have done already will help you get there post MBA.
