Music is my weakness. Meaning I know nothing about it. And I am certainly not pro-active enough to change my inexcusable ignorance.
Recently, when giving general feedback to the class about the choreography assessments our music teacher asked how it was for people. My point was that sometimes its difficult to know where to start. There is a big collection of music in the library, but you can end up thinking where do I start looking?!
The discussion led to the point that it's up to us to help ourselves. To make an archive, write down artists we come across that we like. search them, find similar people, write down their music etc etc.
I'm in second year and am hopelessly behind on this front. I need to start taking drastic action now!
So, to all you future students and first years get your ears open, and pens and paper ready. It'll help you in the long run.
Its all about the music.
