I'm enjoying my experience at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. It feels like a close-knit community because it's smaller in size compared to schools like Parsons or Berklee. All the professors I've encountered are encouraging. Topics in classes are usually executed in a comprehensive manner so that all students understand what's really happening within the music. The practice rooms are okay, some are larger than others. The rooms are not very soundproof. There is a Facilities and Equipment Office where you can check out amps, mic stands, cymbals, etc for the day to use in classes, practice sessions, or rehearsals. The price of the school is extremely high and it's hard to afford unless given a top-notch scholarship; unfortunately, along with that, NYC is already so expensive to live in itself. The school is quite diverse, including many international students.
Review The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music
I love my school but I believe the school has so many divisions and it's so huge that it can be intimidating to push myself out of my comfort zone. I focus mostly on school and how to better my craft but I can have much more experience in what I want to do if I pushed myself and met the right kind of people. The school is really expensive and I believe a lot of the expenses are spent on the aesthetic of the school and not the ethic.
Great curriculum, workload isn't too tough as long as you keep good habits and don't try to cram.
