Just took a music theory test that draped me over its knee and taught me a lesson the old-fashioned way.

Growing progressively more and more annoyed with the state of my education. I mean, I had shitty theory instruction at UW, and UNT is supposed to be much better about it. But even with an extremely knowledgable and entertaining professor, things are still vague. I don't understand what the big deal with a little basic instruction would be, instead of all this ambiguity. Form analysis is the same way. What am I paying for at school? Am I COMPLETELY responsible for making myself a more competent musician or can I expect some sort of guidance along the way?
