I'd be glad to sit on the porch, in the shade, and sip ice tea. I would be willing to do a little supervising as long as i don't have to get up. You will fly me out at your expense, of course.

sorry...

Just as with other schools, the core curriculum - as well as the tuition - are mandatory.

Had I found a deal like this when I was in college, I would have jumped on it! What could beat having a place to sleep, learning to play better, learning repair, and hanging around with a pro for a summer? From what I hear, they eat pretty well at Blokeplace, too. I'm sure they would share some leftovers.

I will now explore opening the Three Valve Prepatory Academy for BP and U of C rejects!!



Will this challenge the BlokePlace academy for tuba-shaped players?

stay tuned for more..........


Actually speaking, bloke would you EVER consider doing this?

and if you can can I join after high school?

Due to overwhelming demand, we are now offering (yes!) a correspondence course. :shock:

The tuition cost - for one question submitted from you, and one reply from one of our professors - is $1000 ...a bargain at twenty times the price :mrgreen: . Further, the course can be taken as many times as desired. 8)

The title of this newly-offered correspondence course is:

"Is this idea for an instrument - to have the Chinese make for me to sell - a good idea, or it is a bad idea? - 101"

I am in Australia and would like to take the correspondence course. Do I get a discount or recognition of prior learning- I just won the New South Wales State solos High tuba (F or Eb tuba) using a Blokepeice Solo. Sure my only other competitor scratched, but I still won.

It is possible to study at blokeplace via correspondence...
The tuition is extremely high, though, and the course of study is extremely abbreviated.

Could you give us some statistics about graduation and employment rates of blokePlace graduates?

What kind of fraudulent student loans does blokePlace offer to students to eventually default on?

Does blokePlace U participate in & meet the nutrition standards of the Feds Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) providing free breakfast and lunch to students?

Can you send us a 4-color glossy brochure?

yeah...You come up with the front-end dough that is required, and we'll find a way to supply all o' that $h!t, just like all of the other top-echelon schools. Oh..and our brochure - just like the others, will feature one white female, one black male, and one Asian female...playing chess 'n' stuff.
