If this is not the correct forum then please redirect me... sorry for the inconvenience Well here is my situation. I have been enrolled at Rhode Island Community College for the past year as its the only thing i can afford on my own and I have been studying Computer Sciences. I have recently been going through a very change of life phase and seriously do not want to do this anymore. I cant even get through a day of classes because I can't stop thinking of the thousands of other things I would rather be doing. I just don't want to be a programmer for te rest of me life. Well here is where my question comes in. I have really been thinking about getting into the recording/engineering side of music but have very little experience other than of course bands demo tapes. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to get started and where to go. How can I get any experience/jobs doing this and what does it take to get into it. I have been looking online and there isnt really any schools in the area offering anything remotely like this that I can find (if schooling is even neccessary...) I know that I should probably just stick it out and finish school as I only have a year left but it is really bothering me. I can't concentrate at all and end up really making myself ill just thinking about how I am wasting my time, money, and life here. Thanks for any help that anyone here can offer.
