I was job shadowing this year so I job shadowed a college student and they were taking music theory. I sat through it....it seemed like a waste of time...

...but if Edge could teach me everything...I'd remember it MUCH easier!!!

sadly I barely got music at highschool (only two years) but now my bassteacher is gradually teaching me some of the theory aswell... seeing as he is a music teacher I should be learning the good stuff

very cool, i was thinking of doing it, i mean im just enrolling as a freshman this year so i have plenty of time to change majors but theory was what really stopped me.

yeah, it would be pretty hard to concentrate though

I actually wish my high school offered a music theory class... maybe I should just take piano back up or take guitar up and learn it that way.

Grad school for a PhD in musicology, then eventually a professorship at some university.

I just like writing about music, and this is a good way to get to do that for a living...

I realised last saturday that I can actually tune by ear now I didn't even know I could! ok, I needed the piano for the first time, but it was a new string on my friends guitar and it kept going out of key really fast (damn those stupid new nylon strings!) so I had to keep tuning, and I just played Sunday Bloody Sunday and automatically tuned it
Learning stuff in lessons >>> learning theory!

music theory is essential, unless you're like some supergifted musician who just makes stuff up and it sounds great.
ive taken one theory course and while it may not have been the most fun thing in the world, when i actually started applying the stuff to my playing/writing music the difference was noticeable.

Hmm, I have an M.A. (hons.) in musicology but can´t get myself to study again to do the PhD. To be professor you´ll need a list of publications, first work assistance for a couple of years etc.

If you ever pass by I can show you our institute of musicology, and the phonogram archive which happens to be the oldest in the world.

I specialized in ethnomusicology and the music industry, then I started my indie label. What are you interested in?
