I was wondering what in your opinion are some of the best normal colleges(Stanford, Duke, Princeton, Florida etc.) that have good music programs?

University of Hartford (CT) has a very well-respected music program in the Hartt School of Music, as does SUNY Potsdam (the Crane School of Music).

Let me guess: you're a junior and it's time to start thinking about colleges. Well, it's 5:30 AM here and I just found out I have a snow day, so we can have a big long discussion about colleges later today.


BTW, I'm a senior.

Ahh, it's not 5am anymore....

So, you want to study music, eh? And you want to go to an Ivy/Psuedo-Ivy school, eh? Welp, before I continue, let me tell you that in your list, one of them does not belong, and it starts with an F. If you're from Florida and love the Gators, I'm sorry. It simply doesn't compare with Duke, Stanford, or Princeton.

Now, if you want to get a music degree, why wouldn't you want to go to a true music school?

I do know one top school that has good performing arts stuff: Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. It has a reputation of being a baby MIT, and it is, but when I toured there, they made a big deal about how they had all kinds of music and acting degrees as well. I wasn't a big fan of the school, but it might be worth checking out.

I'm pretty sure you're right, but I don't know that Temple is one of the "great" universities in America.

Perhaps that won't matter if you get a music degree.

Edit: Yes, Temple's music school is quite good. It is called the Boyer College of music.

Edit 2: The music scene in the Philly area is pretty good.

Discussion topic: "Music School" such as Berklee, New School etc. , or music degree at a "proper" university.

Pros, Cons?

Sorry, wasn't aware he meant "great" universities--I assumed by "normal" he meant general colleges, not arts colleges.

He does mean general colleges, just the upper echelon schools like Yale and Duke and such.
