In addition to that, I've always been curious as to why rehearsal schedules in an educational setting are so totally unrealistic when compared to the "real world" - Granted, it sometimes takes that long to get everyone to play together, but when was the last time you had 16 hours of rehearsal before a gig? 2, maybe, if you're lucky.
perhaps less rehearsal time would even promote professionalism and personal integrity?
Anyway, back to the point - yes, business classes should absolutely be a part of the plan. Or, maybe it's not the responsibility of the univeristy to dictate the classes; maybe it falls on the individual.
My 2 bits.
