Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you all know that I am a new member on this site. I just happened to stumble on this website while looking for ways to network with the film community. So far as I can see this is quite an amazing website. Currently I am taking my general classes at my community college, and also taking private lessons on composition from a local composer. Although I compose on the piano, I am also learning how to orchestrate. My ultimate goal is to compose for television and film. I know I have a lot to learn, do any of you have suggestions on the pros and cons of going to college/music school vs. learning independently?
