Music Composers Unite!
I will be applying for college in the next two years and I am currently searching for schools to apply to. The problem is that when searching for schools, most only focus on the performance majors and not composition.
Some schools I am looking into are Eastman, Manhattan School of Music, Yale, and others.
Are those good options? What other schools should I consider?
I know I still have time to decide, but some schools require a piano supplement, and although I can play piano passably, it is not my main instrument. I am also trying to decide if I should focus on piano, or if I can stay focused on my main instruments (violin, percussion, and saxophone). Any suggestions are appreciated!!
Thank you so much!
I assume you are talking about traditional composition and not jazz composition?
I dont know I would choose Yale for composition, but hey if you have family ties to go there, why not, you can be a senator who composes ;-D
Also are you interested in traditional classical composition programs or film scoring?
Classical (non film):
