Hi there. A dilema in a path of my life. I have a dream of becoming a pro. In between my day job as a programmer and finishing my bachelor's degree in physics I was preparing for audition to get in to music school to study bass. Few days ago I found out that it got much more expensive and there is no way I can pay my tuition. My reason to study music was mainly not because of teachers, but for getting those important connections and also for getting a diploma and being elligible to teach music in schools. I know I can get good enough by myself and private teachers, but is it so much harded to make your path as a pro when you didn't finish music school? Please, any comments, suggestions, encouragements would be much appreciated.
