Curious about Music Education Background of everyone
Hello fellow computer music enthusiasts:
I\'m just curious at seeing what everyones level of education is regarding music and college in general and what your impressions are towards its importance.
Now first let me state that I do NOT think anyone needs to have a degree in music theory to write incredible music or have success in the music industry. But obviously quite a few users on the forum are turning out amazing compositions and landing decent paying jobs. So for comparisons sake I thought I would open up a topic on this subject that would let us see if there is any sort of trend.
As for me, who is totally new to the forum so I have no music samples yet...but I stress yet, I have 2 complete years of full-time college music studies besides a life time of tinkering with music on my own. I am still undecided whether to finish a BA in Music Composition or finish a film degree at a university I have been at for the past year, only three semesters left with that vs. probably about 5 or 6 with the music degree.
Basically, I need help in deciding how important the credential of having a degree in music is vs. just having a degree or one at all in this fun and crazy industry.
