My son plays electric guitar and wants to be a performer - he cannot sing though. We are considering Musicians Institute in LA and Berklee in Boston as well as an overseas location in London - Academy of Contemporary Music.
In particular I am looking for information on how much real contact these colleges have with the real music industry and how many placements do they handle and help with after graduation.
Does anyway have feedback about these 3 places ? I am preferably looking for someone who is attending or has already attended any of these colleges.
My son is finishing High School right now in Bangalore, India - he is applying for admission to Fall 2011 classes - the International Baccalaureate which includes IB Higher Level Music. He is also pursuing the Rock School exams conducted by Trinity of London and plans to take Grade 8 next year.
