But before that, I want to go to school. I'm currently a high school senior, looking for colleges where I can study music. The problem is, I only recently began playing music (a little over a year, and 8 months or more of that was spent without ever looking at so much as a beginner's bass book). With my limited knowledge of theory and my inablity to sight read, I feel as if I'm S.O.L for the mandatory audition most(if not all) schools require to become a music major. My question to you all is, should I try to cram as much musical knowledge into my head and go for the audition, or should I wait another year to learn more and then transfer/apply to become a music major my sophomore year of college.
