I'm in a rut. Musically and as a human being. Ever since I've picked up my bass, I've wanted to do music. Not just rock star, though that's the ideal, but... music. A brief history of my college experience for those who don't know it, I tried to major in music at Edinboro University of Pennslyvania. But A) I needed an upright and B) I needed a lot more previous education than I though. So I gave up, and took up another interest, photography. As a person, if I had to apply a major to myself, I am a music major with a photo minor. Photo just doesn't cut it. My epifany I had a couple of nights ago. Take bass lessons during the summer, work my way up to become educated enough to enter a full music program, come back and major in music. Now here's where I need My music reading skills are sub sub par. What *cough free* sheet music should a beginner take on. I also need help finding a local teacher, how would I go about finding one that was bass specific. Like I said, I'd ideally like to be a rock star, but this is a rare case. I'd like perhaps to write jingles and musical scores for movies etc. I did a soundtrack for a film major friends movie and though I approached it in an unorthadoxed fashion, it was a lot of fun and is something I could see myself doing for a long time. Creating a musical mood and whatnot. Thanks for any input.
