1. The Juilliard School

Juilliard is probably the most prestigious Music School in the US. The institution was founded in 1905 and is based in Lincoln Center in New York City. It imposes exacting requirements and curriculum and has produced some of the finest musicians and music professionals in the US and around the world. Juilliards Music programs include a Bachelor of Music degree, Masters of Music as well as a Doctorate of Music Arts. There are also various other courses available that are different permutations of these as well as related courses such as dancing and acting. Give its prestigious reputation, it has very competitive and stringent admission requirements which include even live audition! Every year, institution accepts only 5 % of vocalists and 16 % of instrumental musicians, which offers a glimpse of how tough its admission requirements are and how competitive the admission process is. Institution has just 650 students, 600 of whom are music students. Others take dramatic arts programs. Juilliard is better suited for one interested in pursuing a career in orchestra rather than in more contemporary music.

8. Royal College of Music

Speaking of London, if you dont get into the Royal Academy of Music, there are other options in that great city and the second one on your list should absolutely be the Royal College of Music. Two similarly-name universities are part of ABRSM, four wonderful educational institutions in the UK dedicated to teaching the art of performance. Only two of four are located in London, which is where you probably want to live if youre moving to the country for college. In addition to actually helping people become better musicians, Royal College of Music do lot of research into all things relating to performance, which further influences teaching methods and how live events are stag and buildings are create.

10. Mannes School of Music

The profile of Mannes has change-dramatically-over past decade. As early as November 2014, I posted an interview with the Dean of Mannes, Richard Kessler. Still at school 6 years later, Richard spoke with me about how the school was internally following new protocol called Mannes in New Key. Essentially, idea behind this was to help Mannes students become relevant musical citizens, teaching them not only performance classes, but also skills in entrepreneurship. After all, if you are working behind the scenes of a major musical organization, you will need leadership capabilities beyond music theory, performance, and history, core triad of courses taught at traditional Music Conservatory. Another thing Mannes did to raise its profile over the last five years is hiring out new faculty, many of which are successful musicians outside of academia. These include people like Missy Mazzoli, one of the nation's most successful classical composers. Mannes built its reputation decades ago as a theory School, as it had an unusually heavy emphasis on advanced theory concepts. While these courses are still available at Mannes, curriculum has change. Like NYU, I felt that New School deserves two separate insertions on this list, as Mannes is very different from New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Both, however, are premiere.Sss

Honorable Mentions

Steve Wolfinbargers Trombone studio at Western Michigan University has had students name finalists in the International Trombone Association Competition-most important International Competition for Student trombonists in World-18 Times over the past 11years, with winners named six of the past eight years. If this does qualify his studio as one of the top Trombone studios in the world for the past decade, I do not know what other standard one would use. The Competition ranges up to age 25, so his undergraduate students are competing against Masters and even Doctoral students from top conservatories in the world. Once again this past week, one of his students was selected as one of three finalists to compete in Spain later this year. Those list of finalists and honorable mentions this year are especially impressive. The other two finalists are from Juilliard School in New York City and Rotterdam Conservatory in the Netherlands. Two alternates are from University of North Texas and Northwestern University, and honorable mention is also from Northwestern. Congratulations to all these students!

Vanderbilts Blair School of Music is something of an anomaly in the world of Music schools. Predominantly a classical music institution house in what many consider to be the world country Music capital, Blair School of Music has played an important role in the gradual shifting of Nashville's musical culture towards a diversity of genres embracing new and traditional. What most people should know about Blair is its incredible financial aid opportunity: as you can read here in my article interviewing Vanderbilts Director of Admissions, no student leave Vanderbilt with any student loans. This represents a seismic shift towards positive future trend, as student loan debt is one of the greatest barriers to monetary freedom facing so many millennials-and even the sizeable population of Generation X-today. School has a drive towards community in ways that few other schools have. Many faculty members live on campus among students. By designing their community in this way, we find that students and teachers coexist with a unique closeness not seen in many other Music schools. Princeton Review also has ranked Vanderbilt 1 happiest campus for several years in a row, demonstrating how much the community at Vanderbilt loves itself. The music program is selective-most selective areas being composition and classical voice. Vanderbilt, notably, is also an undergraduate-only Music School. This is significant, and I can tell you why at some very large music programs, students work with teaching assistants in their first year of education. Also, many large music schools with graduate programs often prioritize older graduate students over younger undergraduates. However, at Blair, this is not the case at all as there is no graduate program. The future of Vanderbilt is bright, as it is a rising undergraduate institution. BOTTOM LINE: Financially-friendly, community-driven classical music program situated in one of America's largest music markets.
