<p>How strong is Mary Washington's music program? Would you recommend it as a good reasonable school for music, considering it's price and location?</p>

<p>I'm sorry that you aren't getting any replies to this. D is home this weekend and I've asked her if she knows anyone majoring or involved in music and she said no. Have you contacted anyone in the music department?</p>

<p>Just to throw in a tiny bit of info for you, my D is a freshman and while she isn't a music major she takes private lessons at the school and also plays in the concert band (both for credit). I got to listen to one of the practices, and the group was phenomenal. The lessons are widely sought after and the performance venues are lovely. The hall where the practice was held was filled with framed posters of past performances featuring nationally recognized artists.</p>

<p>I hope you're able to reach someone within the music department to get a more complete perspective on the program. I'd also encourage you to look at the on-line course catalog.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
