yo guys,
whats up

i'd like to start off by saying dont worry.. this isnt a real war
or a football match post or anything...

so now that i've graduated from school n whatnot.. im looking at colleges
and etc... and well i've finally decided to go to SAE and take up the
Audio courses they have to offer.

Heres my problem though...

I'm unsure of if i want to go to the states or london..
i would like to hear from some other college students and
graduates on this matter...

i mean yeah both countries have their equal opportunities and etc..
but personally i believe that the states has much more to offer for a
young aspiring musician, in the sense that the bars, clubs, venues to play
are more accessible in the states, and more work opportunities such as
part time jobs and etc...

I am not sure how accurate my beliefs are, that is why i'd like to hear from you guys,
and see what others have to say on this topic...


-----------------------------------x-x-x----------------------------------------


by the way... im a metal artist, not any commercial bullshit.. just plain metal...
so thats one thing..
and 2nd.. i'd also like to know the financial differences there are.
Eg. pack of cigs in london is about 6£ ... and from what i heard.. in the states its about 5$ ... and thats a pretty big difference!

so yeah guys... tell me what u think!!

anyways, thanks in advance..

peace!

You're from the EU, so they will subsidise your tuition fees within the EU, University in the USA will cost 'ya.

It depends on where in the UK you go.

London is bloody expensive on everything, but has more prospects.

I'd have to recommend somewhere like Manchester personally, as I don't think it's as expensive in general compared to London (please tell me if I'm wrong), but it's also a big city full of places for musicians.

Since your ONLY based on metal I would head for the States. In NY the scene is more based on the post punk revival and the Indie scene for the most part so I don't know if maybe you would like to consider opening more ground into your musical styles. Boston has the one of the best music colleges with that being Berklee College of Music. Here in LA we have our glorious Musicians Institute located in the heart of Hollywood. It is literally near all the well known venues (The Whiskey a Go-Go, House of Blues, The Roxy, etc...) and also has the Amoeba record which guarantees that you will always find bands or artists that you have never heard of.
