I'm going to double major in History/something else (Philosophy, Education, Sociology, Anthropology) and I'm going to at least minor in some form of Music. Hopefully Music Production or something.

I have played bass guitar for about four years or so. I've played drums for about a year, and guitar sporadically over the past year or so. Most of the music I make though is electronic, using programs such as Ableton Live or Reason.
