ok, im looking at colleges and i really want to continue on with my guitar in college. i also want to get a degree in business so i have something to fall back on. playing in band already, i know how hard it is to earn a decent living. is it possible for me to double major in both jazz studies and business?? when i ask colleges, they say i can do it, but has anybody here done it? i wanna know what im getting myself into. thanks (btw sorry if this is in the wrong section, a lot of the pit guys dont understand jazz and going to college for it....)

Hey dude! I did 4 years in college, and though I didn't do music OR business, I know people who did each of them separately, and I know people who double majored...

Business is often thought of as one of the easy majors/degrees to get... this is what a lot of college athletes pick, so technically they ARE students.

Music, on the other hand, is very demanding... both in time and workload. I have played a few instruments for over 10 years, so I knew lots of music majors... it's not easy, but it sounds like that's where you want your focus to be.

I would say go for it. Unfortunately not a lot will overlap between the 2 majors, except gen eds, but if you are dedicated and hard-working (both of which you SHOULD be to go to college in the first place!!), you will be just fine!

And another tidbit, neither of these majors requires a super-high GPA to graduate... it's not like pre-med or law.... BUT you'll still want to aim high so you can set yourself up for success in graduate school, should you decide to go that route!
