Schools for trumpet player in NY area


<p>My son is interested in studying trumpet performance (classical). Ideally, he would like to attend a school within a 2 hour traveling distance from NYC. Besides the obvious (Julliard,
MSM, Mannes, Purchase) does anyone have suggestions?</p>

<p>Thank you!

<p>Temple University Boyer School in Philadelphia (1.5 hours); SUNY Purchase, Bard, Mason Gross at Rutgers....</p>

<p>thank you GH!</p>

<p>NYU/steinhardt is another one....obviously, Curtis in Philadelphia is in reach (same distance as Temple) but that is a tough one:). I don't know for trumpet, but SUNY Stonybrook has a music program that is supposed to be pretty good.</p>

<p>thank you musicprnt!</p>

<p>Bard Conservatory.</p>

<p>yes, my son says that it is a 5 year program at Bard (must double major)...I have to look into that</p>

<p>thank you!</p>

<p>Bard Conservatory is a mandatory double degree program for all its students, yes.</p>
