My son, who originally was looking at jazz-heavy performance programs, recently commented that he is thinking of applying for music ed instead. He's interested in "the psychology of music" and likes playing a wide range of instruments, and has met music Ed faculty at a couple of schools who were very encouraging. Is this a good idea even if the goal isn't necessarily to teach young kids? Can you recommend schools that are better for music ed? So far he's looked at Berklee and Ithaca, plans to check out Temple, Northwestern, JH Peabody -- definitely open to others. He doesn't want to be in NYC or anywhere south (loves the cold!).
