There's a lot of really great things at my school. The teachers are knowledgeable and approachable, the students are well connected and there's a lot of good opportunities that can come from the school. There's some miscommunication in the programs and where they transfer that have been stressful.
It was great that McNally Smith College of Music gave me an opportunity to study there for a semester through a college program during my senior year in high school. I had really enjoyed my time there and learning through all the great professors that I had classes with. I especially enjoyed my Audio recording class. Learning to make live music through consoles.
Since McNally is a music college, we have a few more amenities that other schools may not. We have a campus library, computer labs with midi keyboards, store with textbooks and instrumental needs such as reeds, drum sticks, and others. We have a cafe with a stage to we have have live music. The one thing that sets us apart from any other school is the recording studios. We get the chance to use professional equipment. Not many schools get this opportunity. And we have actual recording artists like Dessa and Jeremy Messersmith that come and teach classes and use the studios. Its a great facility!
