#beginquote# wow, Where to start . . . 1st, it sounds like you should have chosen your college more carefully. There are many colleges with wonderful guitar programs and open minded professors. Bummer that you missed out. 2nd, The colleges require a "minimum" of the student, but the student is free to seek more. When I got my degrees, I didn't pay attention only to what the school said I had to take, but to what courses would help me get the knowledge and skills I desired. I took many unrequired classes because I thought I needed them. 3rd - instrumental musicians (if serious about their performance) should study classically regardless of the students preferred style. All music styles technical skill. This is why Miles Davis studied classical trumpet as well as jazz. No offense, but it sounds like whining over stuff you could have done something about. GOOOOOOROOOOOO (BA Music Ed. Instrumental, Choral and General endorsements; Masters Degree in Music with Conducting emphasis. 17 year veteran music teacher at all levels). #endquote#
