Re: School vs. Music
School comes first. Always.
Yeah, you can love music, but if that fails (which more often than not it does) you won't have much to back yourself up unless you are rich. Push through it, find a band here and play with them. I play for my schools jazz band, and i also jam with a few other bands when i get the opportunity (quality drummers are in high demand here).
Whether you plan on being a musician for the rest of your life or not, you better have a back up.
