I'm going to start at high school next semester. Where I live there are lots of different high schools, and I applyed for a school where it's possible to play the cello. (I had audition for the school earlier this year.) However, I'm wondring if I made the right choice. Going to this school means that I have the possibility to play the cello at school and go to the orcherstra there, but it does also mean 5 hours more pr. week, a lot of subjects like dance, singing, playing the piano, music therori and history etc. Is this what I want? I'm not sure, and I would have no problem going to regular high school. At the same I love playing the cello, and would do that as much as I can. Going to regular high school, I guess, is kind of the same as junior high with a lot of paper work. Which I find easy, but very boring. You might don't understand why I'm thinking of going to regular high school at all. Well, you see it's like this: In a class of 30 pupils, only about 2 or 3 of them go on with music. The rest have no
idea of what they are going to do, and some even have to 'take up' subjects they didn't have at the music school.
I really wonder what to do. Just for your information: Right now I'm working on Schostakovich's cello sonsta. I have a very good cello teacher who really wants me to go to this school, and I don't want to dissapoint him. If I don't go to this school he will go 'mad' at me, and, I guess, he would be the most dissapointed of us.
Please help me, I just want to make the right choice.
