I was originally getting my degree in jazz composition when I attended university before I switched majors. Fun stuff, still play and compose all the time as a hobby.

What kind of communism are you into?

Left Communism. That's why my tag says Left Communism.

All communism is left. What's your dream for a post revolutionary society, how do you believe a revolution should be handled, etc.

Yes, but Left Communism is a specific form of communism in direct opposition to the communism espoused in the Soviet Union. It is more authoritarian than Anarcho-communism but more libertarian than Luxemburgism. Largely worker focused, workers councils, along with standard communist practices.

Is there a state, or is the primary form of hierarchy within local councils?

I just graduated with my Bachelors in Music Theory a couple weeks ago. Pursuing my Masters next! I want to teach music Theory at the collegiate level as my career.

@tlaney1 can you please explain this to RT? I took music theory in elementary school, but that's been so long ago that I can't remember how to describe it! Lol

It's studying the notes you play, the expression you play them with, the rhythm you play them with, etc.

So, it's jaz vs country, vs blues, vs rock, etc? Some music makes you feel happy and some sad.

Thanks, music.

Not necessarily, RT. My piano teacher mainly taught jazz.

It's learning all the notes, and how to play them, and how loud or soft, how quickly or slowly.

I had a hard time transitioning from jazz to hymns when I started attending church because jazz has some chords, but a lot of running trills, also, whereas hymns are almost always chords only.

That might be a simplistic explanation because I only took a few years of lessons, and I'm assuming music might have a degree in music, as does tlaney1.

Yep. Undergrad, masters, and doctoral classes. I teach ear training in the summer at several universities.👍🏻

Not professionally, but yes. I have extensively studied it as a hobby.
