So basically...I'm going to be a sophomore in High School, and I love bass. I started playing about 6 months ago, and I feel that I am getting fairly skilled at this point...being able to play many Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, and learning Victor Wooten's double thumping technique etcetera. Basically...I am considering my options of what I would like to go to college for, and bass is one of these things. How much would I need to practice over the course of three years to get into a good music college (Juilliard, although it is EXTREMELY difficult, I know, etc)? What should I practice? Is improvisation a good way to learn? What songs are good to learn? Anything else that would make me able to increase my skill level as fast as possible would be very appreciated. However, the main question is how much time I put into it. If it truly is not possible, I understand, there are other things I love too and I can live with it as a hobby.
