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?
Interesting, which institute if you don't mind me asking? I've talked with a professor of mine about the whole PhD thing, and we got into the amount of work, and how many master's students he sees who just don't go through with the PhD for various reasons.

I'm mostly interested in studying popular music, which is apparently in sort of high demand right now (at least in the academic world), but I'm not ruling out classical or ethnomusicology by any means. I want to be open to anything that comes about.

Theory is fun.. I enjoy it sometimes...think of it as the building blocks instead of 'rules'

I plan on using my music ed. major to become a college professor...once I finish all the fraking school that is Haha

PS: Piano is an amazing way to learn Theory..take it up

I was a music major. And now I'm an HR specialist. That seems about right!

I used to teach piano lessons, however, and I insisted on teaching the kids theory. I find even a basic level of music theory to be very helpful as I do things now like sing in choir or sight read at the piano during rehearsals.

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.
ha i hate them. alot of people in my family can do that...unfortunately those gifts werent passed down to me
