Musical theater is a relatively new degree too, so that makes it that much less desirable. My Dad thought I had wasted all of that for nothing too...and to be honest I did too until my acceptance letter came in the mail a couple of weeks ago!
Are you serious? I'm going to tell my parents that. Can I quote you on that?
Well - she'll be getting a BA regardless, so at least she will have that. She's thinking about getting a master's too (an MFA I guess) so that she can teach theater or whatever, so I guess it's not all that bad.My Dad thought I had wasted all of that for nothing too...and to be honest I did too until my acceptance letter came in the mail a couple of weeks ago!
Very nice. Of course you got accepted, you're an Opera major! That's the most diverse major I've heard of yet.
Yes you can quote me!
The MFA might not be the best idea if the collegiate theater world works like the collegiate music world. I have an MM in vocal performance because I was thinking the exact same thing until I found out close to the end of the degree that you have to have major performance experience before you can start teaching at the collegiate level...she definitely needs to look at that. I just had no desire to live the spartan lifestyle that is so prominent among musicians and actors...no thanks!
