Should I Do a Jazz or Classical Major?

Should students learn classical or jazz?

In episode 49 of 'Ask Geoff & Lauren' we answer a question from Eric about whether he should major in jazz or classical music at college. It's a great question as there are many different routes that musicians can take and especially double bassists! We share our backgrounds and what we would recommend new students consider when choosing what area of music to study.

Eric also asked for school recommendations and we forgot to answer that question! This means we need your help. Please post below and let us know where you think Eric should study. Here's his question:

"Any school recommendations? I've been thinking about Indiana, NEC, Juilliard."

I hope you enjoy the video. It would be great to hear your thoughts and recommendations for colleges to study music.
