This morning, I was at Hillel for Tuesday Morning Minyan, and a friend told me to go to a lecture by Jeffrey Schindler, the orchestra conductor, on music preparation. Since I don’t have class after 3 on Tuesday, I decided to go. He told us stories about horrible scores he has received and gave us tips on how to do better. I think everyone else who attended is a composition major, a graduate student in composition, or a professor, but I knew what people were talking about just about all the time somehow, despite not having been taught much of this stuff. I found it very interesting, and I would be interested in learning more about it. Maybe I should look into getting more graduate degrees. It would be fun to get a few different MAs just for the sake of learning stuff, so I will have to see if I can find graduate schools that accept people to multiple graduate programs even if students don’t have multiple BAs. I’ll see what I can do.

About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.

    Interesting. That would be pretty spiffy: doing lots of grad work without the BAs. 😀
