When i am done with school here in England, I am thinking about moving to America to study music.

But I have no idea where is nice, which colleges are good for music, cost of living. etc.

Please, tell me stuff

How are you on money?

If you have some of that, and have decent grades, Berklee is one of the best.

http://www.berklee.edu/

As an example, their 5 week summer program cost about $3,000 more than an entire semester at the school I'm going to be attending.

EDIT:
Below me, no they are definitely not cheap. It's really terrible.

Based on very little knowledge I'm going to say you're going to have to save up a lot of money.

Can you not do a uni course in the UK where you can study abroad for a year or something? as I get the impression that American colleges aren't cheap hence the whole college fund thing.

I agree with this because of the difference in tuition prices. McGill is a top school that doesn't have a $30000/year tuition.


EDIT: Just saw you wanted to study music. It'd still be cheaper to come to Canada, but I can't suggest any schools because I don't know any arts schools.

More elaboration is needed. Depending on who you ask(Land disputes and all that), America's either the third or fourth largest country in the world, and there's an entirely different culture in New York than Boston than Alabama than Texas than California than Washington and so on.

US school's are NOT that expensive if you're smart, I don't know where people get this bullshit from. Yes, some certainly are, but you're going to be guaranteed some money to super expensive schools like that just through FASFA if you don't have the money. Or at least low-interest subsidized loans.

But +1 to Necrosis's comment. Go to Canada if you want to freeze to death.

Move to Canada, I'm not sure what we have here for music colleges, but apparently theres a really good one in Toronto. But its just generally a much better country to live in the america.

I've always wondered...why do people study music? How is that important in any aspect of life? Music is an interest...not a job.

That's my opinion...no need to get angry lol, I'd like to hear people's reasoning behind it.

You will have to save up a lot of money.

What are you looking to study: Classical? Jazz? Theory?

Do you want to do Education? Performance? Business end of music?

Those are the two big questions you need to answer before looking at schools.

Plus, if you go to a public college and become a resident of the state it's usually pretty cheap. At least comparatively.

EDIT: A good one to check out would probably be the University of Michigan. They have apparently a very good music program, plus are a public school.

EDIT2: I also don't know what would be involved with becoming a resident of the state so not sure what that would entail, at least for someone out of country.

Depending on what you wanted to study specifically, there's an Academy of Contemporary Music in Oklahoma City. Oklahoma definitely isn't the best place in the US but the cost of living is way lower than say California.

He's not a US citizen though, do you only have to be a legal resident to apply for FAFSA?

On a somewhat related note, I just got my FAFSA stuff back and apparently I'm so poor that schools should expect that I can't pay a cent for college. Now everywhere I'm accepted to wants to double check my financial stuff to make sure I didn't fudge anything.

The same way people make jobs out of playing sports, or writing stories. Its an interest, that sometimes can be made into a job. Even if you arent a huge rock star, you can still teach music, or work in a recording studio, or hell, even be a guitar tech for some band

What I would really recommend is for him to enroll in a decent college in the UK and try to get in on an equal exchange program where he can pay the same tuition to come here for a year or two while a student from the university he goes to will go to his university in the UK. There are several programs like this.

And for you, if you didn't fudge anything, you'll be fine. I knew I wouldn't qualify for anything from FAFSA, and they still sent me crap to update it.

Oklahoma? They don't even have trains for fucks sakes. It's hot as hell, windy as shit, and consists mostly of fukken wheat and cities without subways. They have a state meal, and it's 11 goddamn different items. They wear coats in 15 weather. They advertise lakes as a selling point to visit which only go up to your chest when you are in the middle of them. Don't go to Oklahoma unless you lose a bet, have a sick sense of humour, or are a masochist.

American tuition is expensive, and I doubt you'll be getting a lot of breaks like American citizens get. Normally I'd suggest Canada as we have top tier schools at considerably less money (McGill, U of T, UBC, etc) but I'm not educated at all on arts schools here.

You sound like a total idiot and I hate this place. For one thing, if the deepest point goes up to your chest that's called a POND. A lake has to be deep enough for boats. I really don't you've even set foot in Oklahoma and I can't believe I'm defending it. I guess I just hate idiots. Not to mention, even if you had been here, the different areas of it vary quite a bit. The northeastern half is quite different from the southwest

Lake/pond is determined by surface area, not depth. I have been in many a lake that was only chest deep.

All of my information is SteveHouse confirmed, that's where I got it from. The 'lake' is in Hell Reno I believe.
