for sure on both counts... 

to Per: like I said in another post... some music schools suck so the 
fellow students are not so high caliber. And.... yes, ALSO... it's, of 
course, possible to not even be a music student and come up with an 
amazing band with your friends who are also not music students... that's 
not what we were discussing.

to Rick: I just mean that it's like comparing apples and oranges... 1 guy 
teaching everything a whole school can teach can't be in any way similar 
to being at a school where are not only a bunch of amazing teachers but 
also a bunch of amazing students to learn from... even if all the material 
taught in both situations is exactly the same... I don't believe one is a 
replacement for another, even if they are both good or one costs less
