  1. Hello, everyone! Just wanted to start this page for those applying to any type of graduate program in music (MA, MM, PhD, or DMA) for the upcoming application cycle.
  2. Hi everyone! I'm a rising senior at a pretty prestigious LAC, and am planning on applying to about ten PhD programs in music theory this fall. I'm pursuing a BM in Music Education/Piano Performance and a BA in Psychology, and my main area of interest for research is music cognition. Grade-wise, I have a 4.0 GPA for each of my majors and a 3.99 GPA overall. I took an independent study last fall with a music theory professor where I wrote two short (~20 page) papers to serve as writing samples for graduate school, and I'm currently in the process of writing my senior honors thesis which
  3. Just wanted to start a thread dedicated to Music Tech applicants. I have applied to 4 unis. McGill, CMU, Georgia Tech and UPF Barcelona. Got rejected by CMU and accepted at Georgia Tech. Waiting on McGill and UPF to announce their results now.
  4. I’m looking at several top music theory PhD programs (Eastman, Yale, Columbia, Harvard, Northwestern...just to name a few) and was wondering how heavily GRE scores are weighed for applicants. My current scores are 160V, 150Q, and 4.5A, so my quant score is low, but I’ve heard that humanities programs generally only care about verbal and writing scores. I’ve considered retaking it to boost my quant score, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the time and money. Additionally, I have a 3.99 GPA at my undergrad institution, so I’m wondering if this might be able to offset my lower quant score. Any i
  5. Hello all looking for fellow people who are applying for musicology graduate programs. Just wondering how everyone's interviews and acceptances or going. The last thread I found on this subject was a few years ago. I've applied to 6 programs and have received 2 interviews. Waiting for the rest. If you would like to talk about programs or have advise, I would love to hear it!
  6. I still haven't heard anything from any of my programs, but that's more or less to be expected. At least until the first week of February or so. In the meantime, I shall provide for you a playlist of songs to listen to while waiting. This is best enjoyed while waiting for admissions committees to render decisions, for pizzas to arrive, for the triage nurse to call you up, or waiting for the world to change (that song will, fortunately, not be featured here). 1. Elevator Operator - Courtney Barnett (For when you're having those existential issues) 2. Waiting Room - Fugazi (I am a pa
  7. Hi. (Apologies, this is a little lengthy) So, I'm a sophomore at Boston College double majoring in Math and Music. I am having a really hard time deciding whether or not I really should keep the math major. The math classes here at BC are really hard and even though I pass, it's always by the skin of my teeth (C range). Such has been the sake for my science classes too. I am a really bad test taker; I have really bad testing anxiety such that I'm paralyzed with stress beforehand and the stress makes me sick because it compromises my immune system. I have extended time but it doesn't matt
  8. Hey y'all! I am fortunate enough to be choosing between Manhattan School of Music and Peabody Conservatory for a Masters in Music for Composition. I'm just wondering if anyone who has been to either has any anecdotal advice. This is an incredibly difficult decision, so any help is appreciated!
  9. Hi, I have received three acceptances: 1. MM in Music Technology at NYU with no financial aid or scholarship 2. MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Rochester with a 25% tuition fees waiver 3. MS in Music Technology at Georgia Tech with no funding or scholarship I am having a hard time trying to decide which school to choose. Could someone share their opinion and offer some advice on my situation. Thanks!
  10. "Stay up on that rise Stay up on that rise and never come down Stay up on that rise Stay up on that rise and never come down Mama said don't give up, it's a little complicated All tied up, no more love and I'd hate to see you waiting They say it's all been done but they haven't seen the best of me So I got one more run and it's gonna be a sight to see.." -High Hopes by Panic! at the Disco. Which song is helping you brave the waiting period? ?
  11. Hi Everyone, I'm looking at Music Technology programs for Fall of 2017. I am finishing my BA in Music Education and I'm a little paranoid about if I have good odds of getting accepted without having a background in music technology. Im really good with computers and have taken one tech class in undergraduate, but some schools are asking for portfolios and while I do have material to turn in I don't know if it seems very impressive. Any suggestions from someone already in a program or someone also looking at one with what I should do to make myself look more applicable to a graduate schoo
  12. This may be a long shot, but is anyone in here in a program focusing on film music composition, theory, and/or production? What are the courses like and what are you hoping to do with the degree? How did you get started on a portfolio/what material did you submit upon entrance to a program like this?
  13. I am considering pursuing a DMA program for music composition and I’ve heard that it’s a good idea to find a school where the faculty’s aesthetic lines up with yours and where you see you’re future career being I am interested in in music that is a bit more centered around minimalism and ambient styles, I’m not concerned with super edgy avant-garde. Some of my favorite composers are John Luther Adams, Philip Glass, Arvo Part, Lou Harrison, Charles Ives, Claude Debussy, Ben Johnson, etc i compose a good deal of chamber music but particularly choral and sacred music and electoacousti
  14. This is precisely what the title suggests. Invite everyone planning to apply for a master's course in the field of Music to share concerns, updates here. And I request everyone already enrolled in such programmes to help us out. @Musicologist I am personally confused between Musicology and Ethnomusicology and want to find out more about Music therapy as a programme. Any disussion around it is much appreciated!
  15. All music fields and degrees welcome! There was a great thread for this last year and I wanted to get one started for this year (there is one already but it is targeted towards MA only). Applications in? Heard anything yet? I just submitted my last application yesterday (music theory) and have already been rejected by two schools.
  16. Hello guys. I did not know that this amazing website existed. If I knew, my application process would have been much easier. Anyway, I finished my undergrad at UIUC and my major was electrical engineering. I applied for the grad schools that have music or audio engineering programs which are based more on engineering stuffs. So the schools that I applied were Stanford, McGill, University of Rochester, University of Miami and UIUC etc... My reserach professors told me that University of Rochester has a good audio and music engineering program based on engineering stuffs. So, Uni
  17. Hello friends!I'm a student in SAE institute of music production, and I'm finishing my dissertation. I’m doing a research about music emotionslooking into the emotional power of music, and I really need feedbacks from a great sample of people! Would you like to help me?It doesn’t take long: in 20 minutes you should be fine. And is not difficult at all! Just listen to some musical pattern and tick on the words that you think better describe them.Here there are 4 versions of the same questionnaire, you can choose to do all of them or even just one. Pick one of them:https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk
  18. Is anyone willing to critique my SOP for MM Wind Conducting? I'd really appreciate it!
  19. Hello all! I am writing to ask if any of you either stumbled across an answer in your own research or know of something at your university. I am looking for a program that would effectively allow me to work (well, aspire to work) in an interdisciplinary philosophy of music space. My interests and abilities are diverse, and that is making me hesitant to apply to either "plain old" philosophy programs, where work in music would likely be very minor -- I only really know of Columbia having much discussion, and even then not much, or musicology programs, in which there is less focus on rigor
  20. We are in the planning stages of launching Damn Good Selection (DGS), a new online magazine covering music found on the bewildering music streaming catalogues available. The music selection on the latest streaming services is vast, and it can be overwhelming to find new music. DGS will offer concise articles tracking the latest additions, classic gems, and some of our authors favourite playlists. All our content will be found through a modern website, conveniently categorised so you can find the appropriate content for your chosen music streaming platform and your favourite genres.
  21. Afternoon, I'm Chel, and the first thing I have to say is a quick confession - I'm not planning to go to grad school! Rather, I come to absorb knowledge, perhaps seek advice, and hopefully strike up a few conversations with like-minded folks. If I'm unwelcome here because of my lack of interest in formal education, feel free to direct me somewhere else. Take two. I'm Chel. I'm an independent music journalist, fresh to the industry, hoping to be published by a publication outwith my own shortly. I also have several (music) book ideas circulating my mind, although they're all quite gr
