#beginquote# DiBo: You teach, and I learn at a school that works students at its hardest to turn out architects or doctors with little elective choices to the student, and thats a bitch too. Instead of cramming 9 classes a day we should have been given a choice for an elective. (The test to get in tested reading and math, and just because I got a certain score on a test doesn't mean I was genuinely interested in technology, but nobody seems to understand this.) There should be an arts major in our school and maybe more teachers would be hired to accomodate. If not, music can be part of our math acadamy. Instead of a Calculus elective we could choose music for a year and accomplish more than one term freshmen year. Learning to count music has been harder than any math I've taken. I can't master counting in 1/16 notes and the concept of subdivision, and I'm a complete retard in anything outside the 4/4 measure. I'm just trying to get a head start because I don't want to be one of those kids "who will just leave when we start to read music," as you said a couple of days ago. Thats not reason to quit. However, you just have to say it, our school is full of really shitty kids. Shitty kids who dont care about math, science, and history as much as music. There is no differentiation to them, so you have to realize that its not just learning to play an instrument that kids are neglecting. It overall learning. Good luck with Tommy. 300 pages isn't that much. #endquote#
