Haha, funny enough it was something we just sort of found out over time; in fact I only realised how much of a big deal they are over the past few days. He is a crazy talented musician, we just really don't get along on a personal/teaching level. I'm doing a popular music performance degree and I'm lucky enough to have a few lecturers who have had some pretty decent success in the industry.
It's pretty focused around breaking into the industry - as in there is a lot of business work and a lot of performance/theory work. It's course is broken up into various modules that run for about 3 months at a time and you tend to have two or three different modules running alongside each other at a time but one of them is always a live performance module (e.g I've just handed in assignments on planning a business within the industry, my final songwriting portfolio for the year and done a concert based around the music of Billie Holiday all in the same week). Hope that makes sense, it's really cool, I've met some great musicians and friends!
And perhaps I will haha, though I'd like to think if seduction was the only way I could weasel my way in somehow.
