I'm a senior in highschool in Spain. I have been studying the trumpet since I was 7 years old and I have always liked it very much but I still don't know if I want to be a professional musician. That is why I'm considering taking a gap year to find it out. My parents totally support me and I have been looking for options for next year (as this year I will finish highschool).
I would like to do this Gap year outside Spain to improve my English and to know more about other cultures. I know most of you are american or english, do you know any programs in music colleges or conservatories that would be interesting for me to look at? I have always studied classical music but I also have interest for jazz and improvisation (although my level at those two aspects is very low).
Thank you very much for those of you who help in this community, I must say that this forum has been very helpful for me in a lot of different topics!!
