SUNY Purchase??

This is my first post and I have a question. How is the program at Purchase? I see many people have had children audition there as well as some of the more elite conservatories. How does it measure up? If it's of any importance I would be sending a percussion major.

Thanks you.

    Purchase is a conservatory and music teachers from MSM, Juilliard and Mannes also teach at Purchase. It's probably less competitive, but it is cheaper (state school) and offers many performance opportunities.

    Purchase is a very intense conservatory, but it's very VERY close to individual students. Everyone here in any music program gets a lot of attention from their teachers, because of how selective the program is. It also focuses mainly on undergrads, unlike most conservatories, who give more attention tot heir graduate students.

    If you have any specific questions, you can pm me.
