Music Composers Unite!
I'm Seongjean Moon from Korea who studies classical music composition at college of music, Yeungnam University, Korea, and I'm graduating on coming Feb. I'm into almost all kind of music such as classical, RnB, Electronic, Latin, Rock, Pop and etc.. and I do compose lots of genre of music.
You can check out my tunes at my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/jean8417
there are my music from classical to electronic
My most interest is composing theatre music. I do want to make musicals (You can also check out my short musicals at my youtube channel)
Now I'd like to apply to graduate school in the states but I don't have lots of information.
I know TISCH at NYU has musical theatre writing, but it is super expensive which I cannot handle it
Do you have any idea of this? or any advice?
Thank you for reading my discussion!

I just addressed this in this topic so I might end up giving you a more watered down response. for me detailed response go here:
but I will give you a more specific response.
When applying to schools in the states, its not a matter of which school is better, its a matter of which school fits YOUR needs and is a fit for you. We have literally TONS of schools here with great programs, and schools with not so great programs. And though a school might be known for being the best, a lot of the times its the schools unknown to others that are the real gems. Case in point, the school I go to. Not the best school in the world and its a very hard school to find, but the composition program here is quiet amazing and has exceeded all my expectations more then when I toured the so called "top schools",
with that in mind, here are some tips to finding YOUR perfect graduate school:
I hope that this was helpful.
to help you find a school you can go to this website and search for one:
I, too, am interested in (at least daydreaming about) the possibility of graduate school. You've given some great advice Tyler. Unfortunately, the "bridge to music" website doesn't work for finding "composition" schools!
