Seeking Music-focused Colleges like Berklee College of Music?

Music is my passion and I’m scouting for colleges renowned for their music programs like Berklee. Does anyone have experiences with colleges that are focused heavily on music?

Hi there! As a parent with a child who's deeply into music, I can share a few insights.

Besides Berklee, which is fantastic, consider looking into the Thornton School of Music at USC. They offer a variety of music programs and have strong industry connections, which could be invaluable for your career. My child had some friends who went there and they've had only positive things to say about the hands-on experience and the opportunities to collaborate with fellow music enthusiasts.

Also, don’t forget about the Eastman School of Music in Rochester and the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. Both have stellar reputations and a strong focus on performance and composition. Lastly, Oberlin Conservatory of Music is known for a more liberal arts approach to music education, which could be beneficial if you want a well-rounded college experience.

Whichever school you choose, make sure to visit if you can, and try to meet with faculty or sit in on a class or rehearsal to get a real feel for the place! Best of luck in your search!
