Hello, World! Currently rushing up on my prescreening recordings for applications for Berklee and NEC, UW Madison, Welesley, Oberlin and other schools that have a strong lean towards Jazz/Composition and are in places that flourish with music more than allergies in Spring. At the same time, many of my music friends have gone to Lawrence, and are generally recommending it.
So, I’m considering it too. I live in Madison, Senior, play piano, Jazz Organ, Analog Synths(have only one+ Ableton), Trombone, Euphonium. Some experience with Trumpet, but it’s got ways to go. Anyways, unlike all of my friends, I am leaning more towards Composition/Solo work rather than Ensemble Performance. And, I am also a serious artist, applying for scholastics.
Soooo, asking students, parents and people who know stuff: Would Lawrence be a good option for Jazz/Composition with a side dish/Double-Major in Art. Especially, how strong is Lawrence in its Art Department? My best reasons for applying right now are recommendations, awesome Trombone teachers, in-State Tuition.
