    I just started a new school where I will have half-normal classes (swedish, english, math, history etc.) and half music related subjects like theory, ensemble, 1 hour of private lesson in bass a week...choir..etc.

    It's pretty sweet...I've seen some of the guys who graduated from this thing play and they were absolute monsters... and hey..it don't cost a thing!

    Sweden and bass owns all of you.

    When did music classes become "non-normal."

    When I was at school, our music lessons were filled with drama studies instead. They managed to get away with this by adding a small musical element to the lessons. Music is suffering really badly in the UK, most schools don't seem to teach it very well.

    You mean you've entered the "estetiska" education program in high school? I've seen some really gifted guys (& gals) graduate from those programs, but I've also seen guys (& gals) who couldn't perform worth a damn. It's not the school, it's who you are and how much effort you put into it - some people just fool around doing nothing except drinking a decent amount of liquor. But surely, you will have a lot of time there for developing your abilities.

    To sum it up: Good luck! And attend all classes, not only the music-related ones!
