    Hello everyone,
    I'm really excited to be here and can't wait to start posting. A little about myself, I'm 17 years old and live in Midland, Texas (Home of George W. Bush) and I'm a conservative republican. I am also a musician and hope to go to college at Texas Tech University and get my degree in Viola Performance and Music Education. I can't wait to meet all of you :D :cool:

    I kind of figured :p
    With a degree in Viola performance would give you the opportunity to play in Symphonies with other professional musicians from around the world, give you the opportunity to travel the globe, and play incredible music written by composers who died but left behind an incredible legacy. A degree in Music Education would give me the opportunity to teach kids about music, how to play, technique, and Music Theory all while being the conductor of a youth orchestra such as a AAAAA high school!!
