Kilynn unfortunately I don't have much knowledge on schools that teach music. Most of what I know was learned by ear and singing in the streets, some school settings, church, and karaoke settings with a few music classes sprinkled in. I walked out in the City Hall area of Philadelphia, PA and began singing and there were people actually gathering around to hear me sing. That will just show you have the ability and courage. Not good odds to make it but a good start. What you are working on is good because it's worthwhile to use established systems where talent can get noticed and promoted. (This is by no means a knock on street entertainers). Do your diligence and use your resources to look up schools which you probably are already doing. The most famous school I've ever heard of that known celebrities have attended is The Juilliard School in New York. I would just ask you to keep in mind not everybody has attended that school who are successful in music. You're going to need to think about what your level of interest is in music. Keep in mind how you like to live.. New York as you know is urban, it could be you may want a more rural setting (just something to consider).
The people you know, are they helpful? Visiting a school(s) will open your eyes. Writing letters to school officials is a personal touch which should offer you some perspective in your decision-making. I wish you all the best in your endeavors. Keep living your dream until it's your reality.

Music is awesome! My recommendation would be to get involved in your school choir, church choir or local community choir (whatever is accessible for you). This gives you immediate access to a network of like-minded individuals who share the same passion but better yet, gives you the opportunity to learn from others! If you already have experience in those areas, just about every college has a community choir or various music courses (instrumentalists, singers, composers, etc) where you can hone your skills with professional guidance. If you have already gone that route but are looking for additional opportunities outside of school or church, there are always local businesses that provide lessons for individuals or groups, many with diverse styles and levels. Start talking and networking with these communities - you never know who else you can learn from or what else can materialize for you! If you like the business side of music, many colleges have music industry classes or you can volunteer at a local chapter of The Recording Academy or a local studio. So many options! Good luck!
