Default Re: School vs. Music

After having been out of school for several years now, I should stress that there's a helluva lot more theory going on in the classroom than most engineers will ever use in actual practice.

The schooling is supposed to be tough and there are a lot of people who get "weeded" out, but you want engineers in society to have the demonstrated aptitude and tenacity to power their way through the academics. In too many areas of practice, it can easily become a public safety issue.
