It’s very true that highly accomplished musicians, singers, and whatnot enjoy feedback from people who don’t play.

What highly accomplished musicians, singers, and whatnot don’t enjoy is people who want to break into the field chasing after or clinging to them. It’s a mystery, and it’s history.

When a music professor told me to go away, I didn’t and felt confused being rejected in college, and she said I was worthless. It makes me suspicious because I was just kicked out of singing, Vocal and Instrumental Music Education, and piano as a major instrument. That means they were up to no good. The Music Education teacher said I was “sneaky,” like it was a coveted program in which I was unwelcome. I don’t know for sure if they knew I loved my programs and the school. They said I was welcome to try another post secondary school, like another one in the same city. However, their program was “cuter.” No one seemed to talk about it or have to think about it much at my level. My roommate pitched in that it was mean if [after I was accepted] for a year that their turning me down was wrong. She was an Education major, and they closed the Education program, when we were even encouraged, my class year in general, to minor in Secondary Education. I think what would be appealing would be to get a Bachelor’s in directing for film. I know sometimes they have big people in the business cater to children in the field, as well. In fact, I decided the other day I should move to L.A. It would be a dream to move there when I was in New Orleans. I came home to Orlando, where we moved after Hurricane Katrina destroyed our house and New Orleans. I thought Disney filmed there, but they didn’t film things like Pirates of the Caribbean there!

I think music as a skill or connection is an experience of transcendence to other forms of reality.
