Anyone here have a degree in Music? Music ed, performance, anything?

At my high school/art school I'm an instrumental music major. If all goes as planned, at the University of Central Florida I'll be going after a degree in Music Education. Possibly double major or minor in trombone or euphonium performance.

Any other musicians?

Hey Grindline:

Yes. I have a BM and MM (both in performance), and I'm a pro orchestral musician. Mr. Muse is also a pro orchestral musician, BM in Music Ed and MM in performance. I teach a lot of pre-college & college students, too.
Feel free to PM me and we can chat if you'd like.

UCF has a pretty good music program, from what I understand. Don't bother with the official double major or minor in performance IMO... it will not help you in the job market. You can likely take as many lessons as you'd like and probably many of the advanced ensembes & repertoire classes if you have time with your BM Ed program. By doing this, you'll likely be taking 16-21 credits several semesters just to meet the ed degree requirements in 4 years.

I have 0.0 musical talent. My wife can sing and plays the sax. :jealous:

P.S., Muse, I think you still owe me a pic of you in a thong. wink.gif

If you want to be a music teacher, GO FOR IT. And be sure to get your band to play a transcribed version of "Hollaback Girl." Kids will go bananers.

If you want to be a musician (in the pop sense), DON'T DO IT. Pick up an Akai MPC and a good synth instead.

That's really awesome. Which instrument did you major on? What school?
