What is a good college for Music Education around northern NJ?

fluteblue2 asked:

I’m currently a freshman in college majoring in music education. I’m having doubts about my current school, so I want to start looking into other colleges in case I decide that transferring is the right option for me.

What are some schools that meet as many of these as possible?:

-Must be no more than 3 hours from northern NJ (pretty much limits that to NJ, eastern PA, and southeastern NY)

-Must have a good music program, music ed specifically (Although I’ve improved quiet a bit in the last year since I auditioned, the schools I was accepted to last time were: The College of NJ, Lebanon Valley, Gettysburg College. I feel the last two were a little below my ability level)

-I would prefer a school that placed more focus on arts than liberal arts

-I originally didn’t want anything in a big city, but I’m opening up to the idea a little…I do live an hour from NYC

Thanks!

Preparing to get my Masters in Music Education?

timbobandit asked:

Hey guys, I’m a sophomore at a liberal arts school. I’m currently getting my B.A. in Education with a concentration in Music.

My question is, will that be enough to get me into a good Masters program for Music Education? Should I transfer to a music school and get a B.M. in Music Ed instead?
I should probably note that I’m from NY and my B.A. is in Early Childhood education. I’m looking to be the primary music teacher at an elementary school (ie. teach the general music class as well as maybe lead an ensemble).

My question is really, will a good music school (Im particularly looking at Crane in Potsdam, NY, but I know it’s very competitive) laugh me out the door because I don’t have a B.M.? Would a B.A. in EC Education even leave me eligible to go to music school for my masters?

Music conservatories?

Rockerbaby asked:

I’ll be entering my junior year of high school in about a month. This is the year that our counsellors really drill us about college stuff. I’m most likely going to end up majoring in either music theory & composition, or music education. Can anyone reccomend universities/colleges that have good music programs? I don’t care where it is; I kind of want to go to school out of state anyway. If anyone could help me out, that’d be great.

Which Universities have the best teacher education program?

Jessi asked:

I’m planning transfering to a university after I get my associate’s at community college. I major in elementary education and special education and my fiance in high school music education.

I’m looking for the top teacher education programs. I’ve searched and searched for unbiased sources but without much luck.

Also, I have no idea which state I want to teach in, and I might even teach abroad. So, a school that is flexible about transfering credits, and doesn’t just try to keep graduates in-state would be ideal.
Jessi,

If I’m a music major, can I claim my private music lessons as an education expense when I file my taxes?

Stephanie W asked:


I’m going to school for music education and am seeing a private teacher for voice & piano lessons. Is this tax deductible?
It’s only $94/month. Would it even make a big difference in my tax situation?
Bostonian…. I’m not talking about education credits. I’m talking about when I file my taxes at the end of the year. Can I claim my lessons as an education EXPENSE?
