University of the Arts Reviews
The school's biggest major are dance and theatre and those getting the majority of the funding. I'm a music composition student, the smallest department in the school of music and we don't get much more than the other performing arts majors. We have composition lessons (obviously) and rotating instrumental chamber groups that sight read pieces for recordings that usually don't go that well. The practice rooms are poorly maintained with crumbling walls and untuned pianos. But the teachers are really what makes this school worth it, most of them at least. If anyone is interested in jazz, this is definitely a school to consider. Anything like classical or modern scoring- not so much.
The University of the Arts is an incredible school in a great location, and provides an excellent learning environment for young artists. The faculty is well-handled to teach this material, and the courses are interesting from the start. The only complaint I have is the school's overall organization. Otherwise, the school is an excellent institution that provides for the start of many careers in the arts. The focus on worldliness, mindfulness, and diplomacy through the arts and in social practice make the students not only better artists, but better people.
I have only been attending this university for one semester, but I plan to stay for all four years. Throughout my short time there so far, I have not had a single teacher who didn't like their job or was a bad teacher. All of my teachers have passion for performance as well as teaching. They have all been super helpful, encouraging, and supportive and I thrive in the program. I also adore the students there. I have made so many amazing friends, acquaintances, and connections for future collaboration. I can't wait for the next semester.
