Ok so I've been playing electric bass for 4 years (im 16) and the local Conservatorium offered me the loan of their double bass 6 months ago. They didn't have a teacher for it and neither do I but I took it anyway and now im to my neck in gigs (two orchestras, two bands, two jazz groups, and a local musical in two months) and im sightreading my way through. The thing is I can keep everyone fooled that I can play but not myself... I've got the opportunity to go to a 'real' double bass player interstate next month to get a lesson but what im asking is.. do you think I can get to a level to be accepted into a major music university in 3 years? because im breaking my neck and i need to know if its gonna pay off. feel free to post any opinions advice etc.
