What are some great music collages to attend to in the US
I am a seventh grader, and I just wan to be prepared for collage even though it is many years away, I want to be aware of the great music collages when the time comes. #music #musiccollages #performing-arts #music-performance #college
I go to Juilliard and I love it. Great teachers, great musicians, great classes, what's not to love? But it's not necessarily everyone's cup of tea, to be honest. Choosing the right school depends mainly on what you want to do. If you're dead set on performing classically (i.e. orchestra music, opera), places like Juilliard, The Colburn School (Los Angeles, CA), Curtis Institute of Music (Philadelphia, PA), and Eastman School of Music (Rochester, NY) are safe bets.
Jazz music is another popular major. Juilliard has a good jazz program, and other places like Manhattan School of Music (New York, NY), Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA), and University of Miami (Miami, FL) have comparable programs.
Ultimately, it's going to depend on what you fancy in the music industry. You have quite a lot of time (7th grade is a little young to be thinking about colleges, if I may say so), so I'd focus on figuring out if music is really what you want to do and in what capacity, because that will mainly dictate which colleges/universities/conservatories you'll be applying to.
