    Yes, but externally examined exams can give you an OBJECTIVE view of how good you actually are.

    I'm not at school actually, but I know what you mean. However, as I'm sure you're aware, you have to show flair, feeling etc. to do well in music practical exams; they by no means only test 'technics', as you put it. Any decent teacher will teach students to show feeling in their playing, as well as just teach them the technical stuff.

    An academy won't teach you that, so why do you want to go?

    Some of the best musicians never had a lesson in their life.

    Music conservatoires tend to focus on classical music- they're not mtv career launch pads. You need mega credentials to gain a place in one of them including usually exam proof (at least grade 8 if not diploma level), excellent music and theory skills, performance experience (ie not your half-hearted busking) and even still, you might be unlucky on the day. If you're honestly good at what you do, go and get a decent degree to fall back on first, keep up the performing and use your uncle to get your demo cd heard by the right people meanwhile.

    I got paid for working in the orchestra pit of a musical production, but that doesn't put me ahead. A lot of my friends gain money through playing at weddings, parties, etc. But that doesn't give them the chance to just 'subscribe' to a music college. If you play guitar seriuosly (I.E More then 4 years of playing in general, and distinction grade 8 standard) then you can audition for a music college. If you just want to sing and play guitar (I.E. chords, band type thing0 then you dont apply to a music college. You can do music at an ordinary university (however might still need grade 8 standard) where you do a performing degree, this can help. Or you can busk in the vain hope of being spotted or get your demo tape played to the musical industries (Maybe wiht help of an uncle)

    Whatever you do you have to be dedicated and sure this isn't a phase. Also have a plan to go back on. It might be an idea to do a medicine degree at a uni where there is a lot of oppertunities to do music and compose and perform - which could earn you money on the side.

    This sound good or awful?

    I think it fair to assert that you are not nearly intelligent enough to be a doctor, whatever your parents' aspirations to the contrary. Purely on the strength of demonstrated linguistic and intellectual coherence, I deduced your age as being ten or eleven, at most; suffice to say, the revelation of your true age was grounds for sincere incredulity on my part. But, whatever; being as I don't have the unenviable misfortune of receiving MTV on my meagre terrestrial - go for it. By my estimation, you've nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

    I have always hailed from the 'cruel to be kind' school of tact and social etiquette. Besides which, I do believe I've just supplied her with a pretty substantive argument as to why her parents should allow her to pursue her own agenda; academic, or otherwise :rolleyes:
