got an email a couple days ago from berklee. i was rejected i guess my guitar skills were not good enough, but question for anybody that goes there. when i was on a tour of the school a little while ago, i was walking through and saw a "gangsta" lookin guy all decked out with his snap back and baggy clothing. as i see him i think to myself, well he got in and he doesnt look very musicaly appt. now now i know what your thinking. you dick! how dare you judge him for his clothing. but lets be honest, he doesnt listen to classical or jazz and more than likely is not very musically diverse. so my question for anyone that goes there. how the hell did he get in? thoughts?

If he got in, then I would say it is actually pretty likely he does listen to classical or jazz.

And practice more?

I don't look like I listen to 30's american gospel, but I do. Don't judge people on their clothes.

How do you know?
Most of the time I dress like a classic rocker, and I basically only listen to folk and jazz.

He's good at what he does. You know they have courses for production, music-related law, and business too, right?

That more likely

I got rejected from music school twice, although both times they invited me back. I got in on the third try. Any reason why you can't try again?

Also, I dress like a pretty normal guy. I wear cargo shorts and t-shirts. I listen to punk and death metal. Other than big band, jazz bores the hell out of me. Classical fails to excite me no matter the style. But no one would get rejected on the basis of musical taste and style of dress alone.

Jesus christ you are so ignorant.
How the hell would you know he doesn't? Let's say he's into production/sampling. Good producers have such knowledge for classical music, old RnB, mowtown, blues, funk, and yes, jazz.

You may be upset, but get off your high horse, stop bitching, and try again like the rest of the world. He got in because he wasn't whining like a child.

Take one look at my profile pic. Do i look like i listen to black metal?


No, but it's one of my favorite genres. Don't judge someone by their looks, color, or clothes you twat.

You were disappointed and to deal with it you scrambled for some way of pretending the school was unreliable

The one you found was shit

I once dressed up as a rabbit it doesn't mean I like carrots. (I do though there quite nice).

My brother dress like all that hip hop non sense btw but I've converted him to fairly broad musical horizons

I dress like a grunger, I like all sorts of stuff (not massively in to grunge though). People's clothing doesn't always dictate their tastes

Maybe he does and maybe he doesn't, either way, he is probably more talented than you, so shut the fuck up

You are a class A idiot. I look like I listen to emo shit, but I listen to ****ing everything. I thought people on this website would understand that looks mean ****ing nothing. I know someone that has long black greasy hair, wears Burzum t-shirts or something and I wasn't surprised to find out he was an amazing fingerstyle guitarist with flamencan influence.

If you're going to be ignorant, at least use the right stereotypes, man. How is a black dude LESS likely to listen to and play jazz?

Last summer my band recorded a demo in a studio downtown in a shitty neighborhood. 3 of the 4 sound engineers who worked there were very typical inner city black guys. They are also recording and releasing some of the best underground hip hop in the midwest. Anyways, one day i had gotten packed up early and got to talking with a few of them and we started going through their record collection they had in the studio. I ended up having a wonderful conversation covering local underground hip hop, Miles Davis, King Crimson, The Stooges, Deftones, Bad Brains, King Khan, and the whole formation of shitgaze. I was incredibly surprised at first, but ended up feeling like an idiot. I just couldn't keep up with them. These guys had heard everything. They were around when our whole local scene was developing, back when New Bomb Turks and Times New Viking and Psychedelic Horseshit and all of these bands that came to define what our scene is now were just starting. I got absolutely schooled in everything we talked about, not that it was a competition, but it just proves, you just cannot judge a book by its cover. I guarantee, if this guy is at Berklee, he knows his shit.

Because that's not why you didn't get in.

was he black? if so, that very well could be why.

its so much easier to get into a college if your hispanic, latino, or black.

No, the reason you didn't get in is because you have a bad attitude.

Maybe it's your inability to correctly use capital letters and apostrophes?
