I can tell you that my daughter has taken private voice lessons from one of the teachers at Shenandoah and she has been wonderful. That said, it is Winchester. It is a fine town, but I'm not sure how I'd feel if I were going to school here. That said, my own daughter did not want to apply there (but we live here). The only other thing I will tell you is that many of the people in this town feel SU takes "everyone" into the program. I cannot say this first hand. I know they did have many -- upwards of 60 MT students last year. If I remember correctly I think my daughter's singing teacher said they were cutting the #'s. They felt it wasn't responsible of them to train so many for so few jobs. Best of luck on the decision.
