We were at the market the other day and one of the students got a falafel and was wearing a t-shirt that said Digital Music. Since A has a big interest in the field, I asked if there was an actual major or department, and he said there was. A was instantly interested, and the guy spoke to her a bit about composition and technology, and even commended her on her dabbling in the software at such an early age. Clearly they spoke the same language, and A even said she now wanted to go to Dartmouth. We'll see where this one leads, but suffice it to say that it's good to see what sort of paths people pursue at institutions of higher learning.
I'd like to learn more and regret not getting the guy's contact info, but maybe he'll come back for a falafel next week. Here's to hoping.
Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Kay in t Veen for the pic.
