Music Schools of Note

(pun not originally intended, but I thought it was funny)


This is probably the world's most renowned music school. They also have art and drama programs as well. Aspire to go here if you want to be really really really good at piano!

Oberlin Conservatory of Music

This school in Ohio is a very good music school. I had a few friends who went there and they are outstanding musicians. As far as I know, it is slightly easier to get into than Juilliard is.
