Music Schools:
How, Where And Why To Study Music

Bookmark and Share

Why study music? People who invest in learning and making music a part of their life have an instinctive feeling that it is "important." Suffice to say, the reason to study music is that it teaches us how to think, feel, cope, breath, live and in some cases brings us closer to god.

Unfortunately, over the past decades, many school systems have cut music from their curriculums. This type of cultural and educational devolution is a huge mistake for which our children and society will pay a huge price if unchecked. Since music predates civilization it is time we recognize it's importance and value by reintroducing it into our educational matrix.

Types of Music Schools

The Local Music Studio usually employs a small staff of independent local musicians. A piano, guitar, drum, brass, jazz theory teachers will work with young children and adults in a private setting. Teachers teach classical, jazz, composition, basic ear to beginning, intermediate students.

The Julliard School Of Music

The Community Music School is usually a more substantial and well-funded facility that melds as an institution that is part of the town or city where it is located. These types of schools often employ dozens of teachers/musicians. They offer study of a broader range of instruments, banjo, mandolin, soprano, vibraphone, woodwinds, horn, viola, violin, clarinet, trombone, baritone sax, harp, vibes, tuba aside from the standard faire of piano and voice. An example of a community music school would be The Settlement Music School, Philadelphia, PA which has five branches in various neighborhood throughout the city.

The College of Music which is usually a part of a large university, will offer degrees in various studies of music such as a Bachelor of Music (BM), Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Education, Masters Degrees and in some schools, Doctorate degrees. Many of these degrees require study and credits in courses that are more academic and vaguely or indirectly related to music. Many Universities have Colleges of Music who employ staff with comprehensive and accomplished music backgrounds.

The Conservatory is a school that is primarily dedicated to music studies and music careers. Similar in many ways to “the college of music,” the “conservatory” is not bound to a broader University structure, politics and policies and thus limits academic distractions and engenders a more focused attention on only music, all the time. Julliard, Curtis Institute, Manhattan School of Music, Boston Conservatory, Berklee School of Music are examples of Music Conservatories.
