Toss out your answers, and help me with mine! Alright...I'm trying to do my best to get out there and play with other musicians. This was actually really, really easy up until last week. I was in this program with 26 other musicians and two professional musicians teaching us -- one of the musicians is a pro jazz musician with a discography and resume longer than I am tall, and one of the other students was an incredibly talented guitarist. The thing is now, the semester is over, I'm back to regular high school, the guitarist is back to his school, and the teacher is back to teaching percussion classes. I have no way of going to any clubs or anything to play with others, the guitarist is exceedingly busy, and the teacher...well, teaches in the only period in which I have a spare. There are no other (aspiring) jazz musicians (read: students) in the school who are on my level of theory or technique. There's a classical pianist who's great, but I'm starting stuff like melodic minor harmony and whatnot -- not terribly complicated, but the guy reads sheets, he doesn't improv through changes with any kind of complex harmony -- so basically I have to people. My bass teacher, who I see every monday night for a half hour, or the teacher at school who teaches in the only period in which I have a spare. Now, I do have lunch free, but I'm pretty sure he leaves during lunch to go teach music at Queen's University. He stays on Wednesdays until 4pm for jazz band practice (big band stuff, all arranged.) So...what do I do? Do I just work with my teacher and that dude on Wednesdays, or what? There's only so much I can do by myself on bass -- I try on the piano, but I'm the first to admit that I'm not passing any conservatory exams on that any time soon.
