...just wanted to add a few comments on Thornton at the University of Southern California. It is a large school of music which has a long tradition of jazz studies. Although the size offers many benefits, the freshmen class is just a bit over 100. The location in the heart of a huge entertainment industry is a plus.
Jazz Studies features:
Composition and Jazz Arranging
Alan Pasqua, Chair
Adam del Monte
There is collaboration with the USC School of Theatre and the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
USC offers merit scholarships and a strong financial aid program.
Thornton Percussion Ensemble
Thornton Jazz Orchestra
ALAJE Jazz Ensemble
USC Crescendo Vocal Jazz Ensemble
Thornton Jazz Honors Combo
