College Violin Performance studio size
Hello, I'm new to this site. My child is looking at joining a fairly prominent music school for a degree in violin performance. We were wondering how many students a typical professor has in a school such as NEC (Weilerstein) / CIM (Laredo) / USC (Dicterow). I suppose that these are not "typical" professors, but we're new to this and want to get an idea of what we're getting into.
Thanks in advance !
As for the professors you named, I know nothing about conservatory training, but my guess is that those people would not be legendary pedagogues if they only had one or two trainees or if they managed their studios poorly.
This is such an odd question...most people I know who wants to study with Weilerstein or Laredo or Dicterow would just want to get accepted first, and then consider how much scholarship they get and then consider the school's location, etc. Studio size is like bottom of the list.
Thank you all for the responses.
Okay then, why don't you tell us how many students each of these professors has? Got me curious now!
@PaulDeck : Well, we wish we knew... the choice was made without that knowledge. However, the positives were that he is a genuinely nice person and seemed to care about his students a great deal, in addition to matching in performance style and in the short trials, the teaching style worked well too.
