Hi there, I'm trying to decide whether or not I should study Music at a University level. I love playing Jazz, and have done many gigs over the past year, mostly in a trio. Unfortunately, the other two members of the group are both heading off to different Universities, and neither are studying music. I'm currently on a Gap Year, spending large amounts of my free time progressing my DB skills. I love playing, and I know it's something I want to carry on into the future - but is a Music Degree the best way to go? I don't think I want to end up in a Professional Orchestra, Jazz is where I want to be. I don't have the grades to get into a top flight university to study anything other than Music, and going to a 2nd rate University isn't worth the money in my opinion. Therefore, the other option would be to go into full time work and keep playing DB as a small hobby. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. I'm from the UK, and live about an hour outside of London - If I were to go to study Music, I would definitely be aiming for somewhere like RAM. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask!!
