What was your college major? I'm choosing English but, am I naive about that?

jayyp15 saidmajoring in music isn't advisable unless you truly want to learn the theory of music...majoring is music is far far less about playing the instrument rather than learning the theories of music.
i was suppose to go to conservatory for saxophone and study music and performance...you can easily minor in music, and take some electives to learn what you wish about music. doing the music major will strap you down to information you truly don't need/care about etc...
and the worst part about music is...everyone out does you from high school because most theory can be conceptualized through advanced performance
UPRYTE saidYou know what, I think you guys changed my mind about majoring in English. I am going to major in Music and minor in English. THANKS SO MUCH!!! I would regret not doing that my entire life when music is what I followed the most and followed first in life. I've just been afraid cause I know how hard it is to get a teaching job these days and there's probably more a demand for an English teacher than a music teacher. But the principle of the thing is that I follow a path through college that describes me rather than describes what I might have to become if I don't get the job I want.
jayyp15 saidi'm just warning you -- music theory can be harder than calculus for even the most advanced of minds
AntoNomad saidI agree with some of the guys that posted above me...To be a writer is a god given gift, and not something you can easily learn in the school/college. Challenge yourself and dare to go where no one has gone before you.
