Aww, THANKSSS! (: You’re awesome!
1. Bachelors Degree: University of Oregon with a Percussion Performance Degree, Music Education Degree, and probably some sort of minor degree (Film, Arts Management, or Multimedia).
2. Masters Degree & or Artists Diploma: Ideally, I would want an Artist’s Diploma and a music education masters degree. Or a masters degree in both. Or a master degree in one or the either. I’m still deciding, I think it’ll be clearer as I get more into the musical careers. The schools include University of Oregon, New York University, University of Michigan, John Hopkins - Peabody, San Francisco Conservatory, Yale, Julliard, and Boston Conservatory. My choices aren’t limited there, but those are the schools I’m probably going to look into.
3. Doctoral Degree: Percussion Performance. This all depends on my master’s degree and where I get it. I want to go to all different schools so I get the opportunity to enjoy all different places but if the school I end up going to for my masters has a good doctoral program, well, why not just stay and continue! But my top choice still stands as the University of Michigan!
Planning is fun! I like to plan my future, it gives me lots of incentive. Some pluses to this week as it nears Friday: I was able to learn a piece within a week, CHALLENGE CONQUERED! Just some minor tune ups then I’m on my way to falling deeper into the piece. My theory grade is currently really good, that means I only have Aural Skills that I need to dig out from the grave. I watched the Eugene Symphony play tonight and a kind person gave us free tickets. It. Was. Epic.
