San Francisco Conservatory of Music Reviews

I absolutely love the conservatory. I study Violin with Professor Wei He, and am very happy in his studio. My peers at the conservatory are extremely driven and this is, as any college experience should be, a very inspiring environment. Some of the academic coursework can be really challenging. Western Civ (required for all undergrads) is one of the best classes. Professor Hohmann will turn you into an intelligent human being as long as you put in your best effort. Be warned though, this course will take more time than you have, and you will have to sacrifice a lot of your sanity in order to keep up with all the assignments.
I think the administration should avoid scheduling students in western civ and Music History at the same time. I also think they should reformat the scheduling for concert cycles so that you are able to participate in ensembles without dying of sleep deprivation.

The SFCM has many advantages to those wishing to develop expertise in the field of music. There are classes in technique, ear training, music theory, ensembles, music history, ect. All of these classes have highly esteemed professors who devote many hours to teaching their students to perform music at a high level. The school is small and most of the students know each other making it easy to collaborate.
It's really nice, many different classes to choose from. Student jobs are offered. Facilities are beautiful! Not enough practice rooms though, as a musician this is still very important.
