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

Hey Ian! It's great that you are thinking about college. The earlier you start the less stress you will have when time comes to applying and choosing which school to attend. The best music schools in the U.S. are the Julliard School of Music in New York, Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and Indiana University Jacobs School of Music at Bloomington, Indiana.

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.

Hi Ian. You'll find that some music schools may have a stronger focus on a particular area (e.g. - Berklee is well known for the Jazz program). Start by thinking about what type of school you would like to go to: do you like a small conservatory or a large university? Do you want to be in a city or a moral rural setting? Once you have decided, you should look at the teachers at each school and see if there is someone you want to study with. See if you can take a private lesson with them prior to applying. Your private music teacher is going to be the foundation of your college experience, so you should make sure you think they are a good fit with your learning style.
