It takes 5 years to become a doctor

It takes 10 years to become a musician

At 3 years or thereabouts, (a typical computer science degree), programming
is a bit easier.  With some shaving off of fluff one could halve that 3 years.
With even more aggressive shaving off, maybe one more halve. But thats it.

And that implies:
- You are working full (and over) time just to learn
- You have a bunch of intelligent and dedicated teachers calibrating your 
progress and your learning-curve
- You have at least normal intelligence
- You dont suffer from excessive delusions
[Just in case you think the last insulting, let me tell you about myself:
When I was doing my first programming class, my 'goal' was to write an Ada 
compiler.  This is called a delusion]

It may help you to have a look at the area as seen for example here:
