Curtis is more selective than Juilliard. The lack of pianists "transferring" from Juilliard to Curtis can be explained by the fact that Curtis tends to admit younger students and has no graduate program in piano.

Interesting fact about Juilliard: as much as people complain about the place, no one seems to leave voluntarily. Undergrad pianists auditioning for Masters programs, or graduate pianists auditioning for DMA programs, they all stayed at the Jailyard if they were accepted. I can only think of one exception (a woman who switched to Peabody for her Masters to study with Fleisher) out of 20 or 30 cases. Also, as far I could tell, it seemed rare for a student accepted at Juilliard to be rejected by another North American conservatory (except Curtis).

But none of that really matters. Here's the important point: it's extremely unhealthy to worry about prestige when you're selecting a school. So many students obsess over it; they feel they need that validation from a famous and selective institution, to prove their worth to themselves and others. It's easy to empathize with this attitude, given the competitive realities of the profession, but it can be very harmful if it prevents the student from making good choices. Over the long run, the esteem of alma mater doesn't matter. Don't worry about which school is "best." Ignore rankings. Find the combination of instructor, environment, cost, location and student body that is most conducive to your personal and professional growth. Easier said than done, of course. Good luck.

This is where my son studies the piano -- and this is the moment to say thank you to Kreisler who recommended a teacher there. We are more than happy.
(BTW Kreisler, I tried to thank you personally but your PM box was full and rejected my message.)

Lemon you're actually absolutely right...I forgot about 3 important things:

1. Curtis does not accept applicants over age 21 I believe it is? That means every single person in Curtis must be under that age

2. Curtis has no graduate program and

3. Juilliard's graduate program is FREE (as far as I know) which means I assume it's natural for someone to transfer from Curtis (free) after they're done with their undergrad to Juilliard Grad School (free) for a fully free education of the highest order. I am assuming that is what Koji did...

I would like to share a music conservatory/university where if you get accepted as a music performance major and therefore are probably awarded a nominal scholarship, you get in-state tuition, even if you are not a resident of that state. It is University of North Texas, which has one of the top music schools in the country.

Heretic- careful with the word 'transfer-' I know what you really mean, but transferring usually refers to leaving in the middle of a degree, a few years into it, and finishing somewhere else, whereas Koji I believe just got a degree at Curtis and then went to Juilliard for graduate work.

oh yes, Heretic. Opus 119 is my fav. Univ. of North Texas is not easy to get into. I think it depends on what major you are. They are No. 1 in Jazz in the country. But their classical music dept. is also very well respected and they have some great teachers. It is a huge school -- around 1,600 music majors! Yikes. So always something to listen to or a group to play in. My violinist son is most likely going to attend there, and he'll be paying what a Texas native pays. Pretty good deal!

it looks like most of the top music schools are listed already...

but let's not forget some of these top notch professors who may not be at those world class institutes.

Do you also have to learn other subject at conservatory, such as English, Maths, History, etc.? Wouldn't that be a lot and very difficult to combine?

What do you all have to learn at conservatory (weekly private lessons, theory, chamber music, and?)

University of Michigan requires (for a piano performance major):

1 semester of College Writing (4 credits)
1 semester of Argumentative Writing (3-4 credits)
2 semesters of French, German, or Italian (8 credits)
At least 15 credits of other non-music courses

Most conservatories are making the requirements include what Sam said (more or less). Depends where you go really. Usually if you go to a school associated with a university you'll have to do courses that don't necessarily pertain to music.

If the school meets state and national accredation for colleges and universities, then the academic course work is the same as for any other undergraduate degree. You will have to take credits in Math, English language, Sciences, Humanities, P.E, Liberal Arts, etc.
I went to a college and conservatory of music for my under grad degree, and had to take all of the above in addition to the core music program for music ed/piano performance, and that was back in 1982.

It really varies from school to school. The best way to get a feel for what courses are required (both in music and general education courses) is to go to the conservatory or university website and search for the coursework for your particular instrument and degree path. A Bachelor of Music is very different from a Bachelor of Arts, for example.

I applied and got into Cleveland, Indiana, Oberlin, Lawrence, Northern, and Wesleyan, and had about 1-2 teachers from each school to have a lesson with, and found by far my favorite at Illinois Wesleyan.

I am currently studying there now with Lawrence Campbell.

He is truly remarkable... as amazing of a teacher as a pianist! I see internationally renowned pianists come here and perform all the time, and I have not seen one concert as impressive or musical as his was last year. If you want to know more, e-mail me sranney@iwu.edu or kingsha@yahoo.com

I taught at Wichita State and know several of the
instrumental faculty there. It is a fine department, but I would not call it prestigious. Julie Bees teaches piano there, a merititious pianist.

It's got an accredited piano department. I don't know how it stacks up next to the other schools mentioned, but I think it has a decent reputation.

Pianojerome, great points! Some of your points are reasons that I am studying where I am.

Just a quick note to correct the poster who said that 21 was the absolute cutoff age for Curtis applicants - that's not quite correct, as we do accept vocal students up to age 26, opera students and composers up to age 28, and several other instruments like organ, harp, viola, etc. at a slightly higher age bracket (age 23). Also, master degrees are offered in the opera department. Please refer to our catalogue for complete admission details, available as a PDF download from our site at <a href="http://www.curtis.edu">www.curtis.edu</a>.
If anyone has any Curtis-related questions, please feel free to either post them here in the forum or email me directly. I'm the Director of Student Recitals and Instrumental Accompaniment here at Curtis. Looking forward to making many of your acquaintances here on the forum!
All the best,
Hugh Sung

Kalchev is good friends with my professor. I don't know much about him, but hear that he's a little odd...he's also apparently very close to his doctoral professor at yale, Boris Berman. So that connection is very powerful.

Right on Joejazz. I'm a graduate from 1976 with a degree in composition. Berklee is indeed a fine school, and not limited to jazz alone. As part of my degree program, my graduation portfolio contained many chorales, madrigals, motets, fugues, a piano sonata, a full orchestral piece and numerous other classical works in addition to all of my small, mid and large ensemble jazz creations.

Best regards,
Roger
