Universities/Conservatories that require orchestral excerpt/repertoire classes for B.M. and/or M.M. degrees?

June 8, 2012 18:55

Hi fellow violinists,

I am currently conducting research in orchestral studies in the US. Right now what I am doing is compiling a list of which schools in the US *require* (not just offer) orchestral repertoire/excerpts classes for B.M. and/or M.M. degrees. Later on I will compile a list of schools that don't require but offer these types of classes. I am sifting through dozens of school of music websites and looking at what each program requires. However, I would greatly appreciate knowing if any of you know off the top of your head some of these schools. I have looked at the most seemingly obvious school and conservatory programs already, but I don't want to miss a "hidden gem" so to speak. If you have any thoughts or could assist me in any way to help me speed up this process, I'd be most grateful!
Thanks so much in advanced :)
