Hi All, I was wondering if anyone can help out with this question? I really LOVE bass, and was thinking of majoring in a performance degree for bass. I am just curious that after 30 years college has not changed it's curriculum. Why can't they be more like Bass Insititute. Meaning that if I did major in bass I would have to learn how to play stand up bass. Not that I wouldn't want to learn, however, I am a small gal and I just wish the electric bass would be part of there program. I was checking out Bass Insititue and they have many styles that one can check out. I LOVE jazz as well. Can anyone shed some light and has anyone on this forum ever gotten a degree in the performing arts. Thanks Greekbassist!
