What are your opinions on going to college for music? For myself, I am a fairly talented guitarist have thought about going to a conservatory quite a bit. However, it seems that wherever you look you have people (including musicians) who suggest that you just get a normal job and do music when you can.
Quick pro/con of music school for performance
- You are forced to get to a higher level of ability, and you can focus on it more than you may otherwise - Meet your to-be band (it seems like a lot of famous bands started in college) - Have a degree in music
- Potential waste of a lot of $ and time - Time may be better spent in a band touring and practicing and writing - Hard career, risk of not paying off student loans for a long time
The way I look at it is, it's worth it if you are good enough to get a decent scholarship because of your musical ability, because it shows you are in the top tier.
I'm somewhat vaguely related to the guitarist adam dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage) and the way he put it was he was friends with 2 sax players in college. One was really good, the other was excellent. The really good sax player is on the streets, the excellent player has a gig on some popular TV show
TL;DR: Music performance degree, worth getting? Worth getting if you can get a scholarship?
A question to the more American crowd, when you study History do they cover topics like this and the slave trade. The stuff that puts America in a bad light, or is it swept under the carpet so to speak?
It's not swept under at all where I go in NY...but it is NY
No, I am not "trolling." Grow up, people have died in the past and will continue to die. Sometimes these deaths are for racial reasons, sometimes they are from "natural causes." In what way do these deaths affect you? May I add that these creatures died a century ago.
On the topic of finding the postcards amusing, do you not like to laugh? I like to laugh, it brightens the melancholic truth, that is our mortality.
if they are basing their policy on science and research you'd think that they found that legalisation often results in a decrease of drug use.
Also maybe this is public enough to get people out of the dillusion that marijuana isn't bad for you. Sure, it isn't quite so terrible (you probably won't die from it) as other stuff but it does lead to problems
" Looking for eBay sellers who are looking to make an extra part time income. Serious inquires only please, most of the work will involve just listing up items and answering emails. I can discuss much more if you email me. I usually like to deal with reputable sellers only but email me your user ID name so I can check your reputation if you are interested. I have dealt with people interested but they only check their emails every two or three days which is not good enough. I need someone who checks their emails daily even if its a few minutes here and there. Thanks "
Alright so yesterday I was looking at craigslist for fun and I saw somebody needed somebody to put things up on Ebay for them, and they'd pay them. However, it turns out this is not a 70 year old women is just illiterate, but somebody who flips things to sell on Ebay. The guy claims he can pay like $5 commission on $100 jerseys that he's selling.
I never see the actual product he is selling, but the majority of my concern just is that I'm unsure if I could be screwed over by this into actually losing money, when he ships stuff the payment goes to my account and I send him the money - commission.
He's selling kinda strange things but they do seem like things that could sell in a month
I'm always glad to know how to play drums and guitar. I'd like to know keyboard better though, violin might be cool to play in addition to guitar. Double your melodies with an electric violin, rule the world.
