*sigh* My life will make one heck of a biography . . .
I just got an email back from my university's music department. I asked if I could take a music class, even though I was not a music major and could not play an instrument. After all, I love music and I love composing, and I would love to learn more while I'm in college.
To quote the response: "Most of the music classes are for music majors, and are really only suitable for people who play or sing."
What!?! That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard! What about people who compose?!
The woman did go on to say I am eligible to take those stupid music appreciation and history courses. No thank you.
I do plan to email them back, and maybe if I'm lucky I can change somebody's mind, but . . . ugh . . . that's very annoying.
I am very grateful to those on this forum who are willing to teach and help for free. Right now, it seems to be all I've got.
