Be prepared for a lot of snarky people, be prepared for being put on the spot, be prepared to pull out your hair when people talk about 4'33 by john cage. Enjoy yourself its a blast

No really it is

What does your degree/diploma/certificate focus on? Composition, performance, jazz, musicology, audio engineering?

I can't imagine someone could get into a music school without knowing what a major is... Maybe he just means guitar lessons?

Maybe he's British? or lives in a British medium country? O_O
I dunno any "Major" either. All I know are Bachelor's Degree, Masters Degree and PhD.

I'm pretty sure it's referred to as a major in Britain too. I explained because English might not be his first language. I assume you aren't old enough to attend university if you don't know what a major is.

We don't normally talk about majors. I think most people would know what you were talking about, though.

The term was not used when I attended university in the early 90s in Britain. It sounds distinctly American to my ears.

... with all due respect, it's very hard to answer questions about music academies when we have no idea if he's doing a residential 3rd level course, a part time diploma, or just private guitar lessons once a week.

So, what are you doing threadstarter?

@Jesse Clarkson: I live in Belgium and when I went to the academy, they didn't mention anything about majors..

I have 2times a week theory and 4times actual guitar lessons
