The Juilliard School Reviews

Juilliard is a difficult place to study and an extremely rewarding one at the same time. It is not a place to discover yourself as an undergraduate as an enormous amount of work is required of you. However, for graduate students and very mature undergraduates, it is a place where musicianship will be demanded at the highest level, in the best way. You are treated as a professional from day one and in many ways this is a great thing for a musician; to be taken seriously by your peers and teachers is not a privilege to be taken lightly as you will not encounter so much respect after leaving.

Very individual experience attending The Juilliard School. The past four years have all been different, but musical and artistically very rewarding. My professors and teachers are the highlight of being at this institution. My colleagues are also a very important part of being at school, reminding me of the diversity and talent in this world.
The common outsider sees Juilliard as a prestigious, uptight school with classical views. However, the insider sees the real Juilliard. The amazingly supportive community and family of artist that we are. We learn to collaborate and enjoy or time with in the the glass walls that allow us to draw inspiration from the city, our canvas awaiting our mark as artists. I have had an interesting time here at Juilliard and wouldn't change my decision for the world. The faculty is amazing, the work-study opportunities are phonemail. I not only have a genuine dance family, I family in the admissions office, in the costume shop, I've made amazing friends with the security guards and even the chefs and cashiers at the cafeteria. Its a home a way from home for me.
