currently i'm a freshman on a premed track and majoring in either neuroscience or psychology. but i've been thinking about what i would really love to do and realized that i actually would rather be a musician than a doctor. as much as psychology has interested me in high school, i haven't been performing very well with the sciences..
my music background is taking piano class when i 6 for half a year, and then stopping because the teacher could not handle my laziness to practice. when i was 10 i took violin lessons for two years. then i moved to a different country.
i took band all throughout high school, playing the tenor sax. i only played in the concert band because i always had schedule conflicts for wind ensemble. i played in a regular jazz band there too and never had the confidence to audition for my school's jazz ensemble. i played in marching band and my senior year i did pit band for a musical (which i only had mediocre skills for).
i also took a basic music theory class my junior year of high school. now, i'm realizing that maybe if i had realized how much i've been growing around music and how much love playing and making music, i would've focused on music much more in high school, rather than organizing my schedule around other science classes.
i know if i decide to major/minor in music it's going to be very hard. which ever i decide, to remain with the same major or changing it, it will be difficult. there's no easy way to life. i just want to know from music majors and those with experience with music, what their opinions are of my situation.
