    Everything about this school is fantastic. The teachers are welcoming and encouraging, administrative staff and are understanding and patient, and fellow students are goal oriented and passionate. This school is made for anyone with a passion for music. Not to mention, they offer music business and songwriting majors which not all music schools offer! If you are daring enough to audition, it’s something you won’t regret!

    This school has some of the most qualified teachers. Every week there has been a master class with a famous musician. In addition there is the perk with the School being in L.A. one the world's capitals for new music. I highly Recommend this school to anyone who wants a cheaper, more chill, and possibly the best alternative to berklee college of music.
    I studied in this school. Performance major is very nice, and there are a lot of great students in them. But CVM(Composing for visual media) is the most terrible major in this world. Teachers don't have any motivation to teach (For example, in 4 hours lecture, they explain about only homework for first 15 minutes, and they say "Do it" without teaching. And sometimes teachers show a free youtube video 1 hour instead of teaching. While we are watching video, only what teacher says is "Beautiful, simple, good sample). In generally, if we want to study composition, we have to study harmony and counter point and analysis, but no teacher doesn't (can't ) teach these fundamental things. It means they are con men. So even if you study hard, you can't go next step any more. Because they can't teach anything important that high level colleges require. I don't wanna see a person who faces same situation as me. So my advise is that if you want to study composition, you must not go to CVM!
