LOL @ young people who think they know everything
I don't. I'm actually a relatively big noob at a lot of music stuff.

I feel like the whole apprenticeship deal is meant to be a major part of your project. No matter how good you may be, and you're certainly very good, you can always at least learn something from someone else who has experience.
Without that criteria the project would just end up being another exercise in something you have down as rote already anyway, and wouldn't serve much to help you learn and grow.
You're very much correct and I'm sure seeking apprenticeship is able to allow me to learn new stuff I've never learnt before. But I don't want to learn anything or improve in this project. I don't care about this school project and just want to get it over with since it's for a subject that was forced upon me and all other students anyway. I want to get a good mark in it making something I already KNOW how to do, instead of risk making something new that may or may not work, especially when I have a tonne of other music projects and schoolwork to do. If I wanted to expand my horizons I'd do it in my own time with research, asking stuff over here, etc... not in a setting where I have to write journals and interview people on everything I do.
Anyway I've always been giving my works in progresses to musician friends of mine who have far more experience and are far better than me at music, and got all the feedback I can ask for; in turn they give me their WiPs for my feedback too. And I post my music here in the Audio Portal, getting reviews and learning new techniques and learning from my mistakes from those reviews. So essentially I've never been doing it on my own, and the mentor thing is just added stress.

If you don't find anyone suitable then I'd be happy to lend you a hand.
It's not my day-job (literally 2 weeks of education left) but I've made a few grand doing music and related projects.
So... Yeah, if you need someone and nobody else is available, send me a PM. :)
Thanks a lot for the offer dude. Camoshark's already helping out, but I need to find people to interview too. Do you think I can PM you interviewing you about music? Which subject of music do you know best? (composition, synthesis, etc...)
