I will be attending graduate school starting next fall to attain a Masters in classical guitar performance. My long term goal is to be a full time professor at a University teaching guitar and music history. As of today (03/30/2015) I have not heard results back from all the schools I auditioned at. The deadline for my selection is 04/15/2015, so by the time my Black Dog gig comes around, I should be able to let everyone know!

Thanks for all you're support folks!
