If I go back, it is only logical I go back to my alma mater. I have either 1 1/2 or 2 years left of a half scholarship of, like, $22K, I think per semester.
I don’t feel comfortable going to college for violin, especially not at a camp place like that where you rely on past luck and how early you started, maybe in the end.
I do like that college, and I don’t know where to study violin that would make sense with my talent but lack of technical skills, like all the positions, if using vibrato, playing fast yet, etc.
Unfortunately, college is a big thing, and it’s the rest of your life and you just have to work to pay it back. I can get some loans and maybe even money from Lejeune, alas!
So, I was scrolling through the majors and found History with a concentration in International Studies, logical, and, further, a concentration in European Studies. Those concentrations were my choices out of the options and what I wanted, anyway. Also, a 2 year language sequence of German as my choice and all they have on that campus. I think I’d have 7 classes of general history, 3 classes of general international history, and 3 courses from European studies. If I had to pick another language, I’d pick Latin or French, since I noticed the language courses might be higher requirement levels. That’s 39 credit hours. That’s 4 semesters if I took 12 credit hours each semester. I need a few more general studies etc. I think I finished electives and am gonna pick a minor. Okay, I chose Art History. That was easy!
I think the opportunity in music is nonexistent for me today regarding what I can do, like if in college or with a teacher, at my age. I hope to still practice violin and learn German, but I have to lug myself to a practice room or get an apartment nearby.
