If you're interested in learning the basics in Music Theory, check this site out: http://www.musictheory.net/index.html

Someone on another forum linked to this and I thought it'd be pretty helpful to anyone interested in learning the basics.
I've been checking it out for an hour or so... It's simple and very user-friendly. I recommend it.

Granted I got a whole lot of scholarships because I was smart and stuff, but yes, I could have done something else with my college years. :(

Eh, if you're passionate about it, persue it, right?

I never would've guessed you had a degree in Music Theory though. :lol:

We learned a little about that. (Very basic stuff) I think that's more in the Physics world. And musicians handle that stuff rather poorly.

I take it "music performance" doesn't mean playing instruments?

Yeah. More emphasis on performing and less on history, theory or composition.

My main instrument was Percussion. Not really drums (Though I do play them) But Keyboard work (marimba, vibraphone), orchestral stuff, and my personal intrest was in traditional hand drumming and stuff.
