Alright my other one got locked since I bumped it ... so I won't bump this one and sorry about that, I'll take the warning ... but yeah I'll just copy and paste

So right now I'm in Computer Information Systems/Computer Science since I switched between the two, but going back to CIS now. I've been toying with these for 3 years now and find its something I'm not exactly enjoying that much. So I was thinking about what I would really want to do, and this is where I need your help, or suggestions or whatever.

I decided I want to do something music related since honestly, its my main interest in life, and anyone who knows me will agree. I was thinking about sticking with technology so I had ideas of music production, studio recording technology or whatever. What would you guys recommend I take a look at for music technology that would keep me interested and really into it?

Also which colleges are good for this kind of major, specifically around NY, so it can be in NJ or PA or whatever, prefer in NY, but I just need some ideas. Or should I stick with CIS, and just practice and do some studio learning myself, help pleaseee

oh ... and I also have to convince my parents of this change, since theyre hell-bent on me staying a computer major which is the only reason I did it this long
Take electrical engineering and design your own recording software/hardware. Or just take a regular music degree at a place like Berklee (I don't mean necessarily that prestiguous, but they train you in playing as well as producing there).
Finish your comp sci degree and then go to like a 2 year sound production school. This is a two fold plan. Number one, you'll do way better in the job market with that degree set up. Number two, if the music production doesn't pan out, you have a comp sci degree to fall back on.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!
Alright what I was thinking about doing was, going and just finishing up the CIS AS degree since all I have left work wise of that is a semester. After that I was going to go and get another degree or a certifcate in the Studio Recording Tech field, hopefully it'll work out for the best though.
Now it is just a idea of whether that would be a good idea to do, and go to school for another 2 years to do this studio recording certificate, or should I devote an entire degree to it.
