Wandering if anybody can provide some insight. My daughter is a high school junior and we are starting to look at colleges. She's been playing the violin for most of her life and even though she would like to pursue a music career we feel that a double degree would give her more choices later on. Since she also has a strong interest in sciences we are looking at schools with very strong academics and also music deprtments. Among the options we are considering are Columbia, Princeton, Johns Hopkins/ Peabody, Carnegie Mellon, Boston University, Bucknell, Rochester university/ Eastman, Bard College. So far we are geting ready to visit BU and are trying to get as much information as posible about the music environment there, teachers, studios, general campus atmosphere. We live around Philadelphia and my daughter likes the big city feel, also not being too far from home...hence limited options. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
