What are the European equivalents of famous American music schools such as Juilliard and Curtis?
I know that there are many more great music schools in America, I just used the schools that are the most famous here.
I would prefer an answer with multiple countries listed in it, but give me what you know! If there is a good site that lists many schools hit me with it.

To Del - you are forgetting the Royal College of Music, which is worth a mention, if only because of some of the wonderful manuscripts and instruments that it possesses.
And in Switzerland is the Centre de Musique Ancienne (Part of the Conservatoire de musique de Genève), which is one of the best places to study early music performance.
And The Royal Conservatory of The Hague, in Amsterdam. Which again has an excellent early music program.
And in Italy, there is the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia (Rome), which is perhaps better known as a "musical" institution, rather than as a school. It does however have a very good educational program - and VERY famous orchestra (perhaps the leading orchestra in Italy?), which, along with the chorus, often performs, and records operas.
Also in Italy, is the Conservatorio di Firenze (Conservatory of Florence), and the Civica Scuola di Musica (Civic School of Music, in Milan) and the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi (Milan). Among others...
And the Royal Academy of music, in Denmark...
There are good schools everywhere, not just the US and Europe. Schools in Asia are generally very good, as are a few here in Australia.

What do music school auditions consist of?
I am planning on applying to Western Connecticut State University's music school soon. I want to get my BS in music education, but I would like to know what knowledge and skill set a school expects from their applicants. I play piano, bass guitar, and drums. Not sure if it is relevant, but I want to focus on piano. I do not consider myself an advanced player, nor do I consider myself a beginner. I am well aware that I have to put effort into preparing myself for the audition, but at the same time I know that the school does not expect you to be a professional. I just hope I can get a more detailed sense of what I should know for the auditions. I already read the audition requirements but they don't say exactly what they are going to evaluate on (which I know varies from school to school). I know it kind of sounds like I answered my question, but I'd like a more in depth answer as to what I should know for when the time comes. Thank you!
Thank you both for your comments! I appreciate your honesty and sincerity. It helped me evaluate myself on a more unbiased level. Like I previously stated, I understand that it is going to take a lot of effort on my part to be prepared for the audition, and I will look for a personal instructor to evaluate my skill level and steer me in the right direction. Thank you so much!

I am a music major. I have been through college auditions already, so I know exactly how it all goes. First of all, right now is not the time to be applying to music school... audition season is over. Most auditions (including for WCSU, which is says on their website) are November - March. The time to apply is in September - December, depending on what date you want to audition on.
Though you're right, they don't expect you to play like a professional for an undergraduate college audition, you have to know what you're doing and you must be pretty proficient on your instrument. In my opinion and experience, most people who are auditioning for college are considered advanced on their instrument (while the word advanced, of course, is a relative term).
You must have read the wrong part of their website, because in about 1 minute on the website, I found all of the information I would need to know if I was auditioning on piano. Below is some of the information from their website:
"Students wishing to pursue degree programs in the Department of Music must adhere to the following criteria for admission:
-Fulfill general admission guidelines found in this catalog for the university, school and department.
-Perform and pass an audition, in person or through electronic media, for members of the faculty. The student, through this audition, must exhibit the standards and skill sets required for entry into the Department of Music, including:
--The ability to read and interpret standard musical notation.
--The ability to produce an acceptable tone quality on one’s instrument or voice commensurate with entrance into the liberal arts program, the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or one of two professional degree programs, the Bachelor of Music (B.M.) or the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) at the collegiate level.
--The ability to accurately perform basic fundamentals associated with one’s instrument or voice, such as:
---clear and focused tone quality;
---a clear and precise rhythmic concept
---an understanding of the interpretation of musical line;
---an understanding of the appropriate style of the selection; and,
---clear and precise articulation/diction.
--The ability to accurately perform repertoire on one’s instrument or voice commensurate with entrance into a liberal arts (B.A.) or professional degree program (B.M. or B.S.) at the collegiate level.
-Take and receive a passing score on a sight singing/ear training examination. (This examination will be used for entrance.)
-Take a music theory placement examination. (This examination is for placement only.)"
"-12 major scales and arpeggios (two hands), four octaves
-Perform from memory, three contrasting solo classical selections. One selection should be by J.S. Bach [For Example: 1) A Prelude or Invention by J.S. Bach; 2) A Sonata by Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, or Beethoven; 3) A selection from the romantic, impressionistic or contemporary periods.]
I hope this helps.
Can I go to music school for guitar and singing at the same time?
I'm 14 right now and I want to go to music school. Right now I am currently learning the electric guitar, bass guitar, the drums, and the keyboard. I also sing and have done performances. Can I study all of these instruments or just guitar and singing?
just because you cant mastered all of them doesnt mean i cant.

Question answered by Sarah
The Juilliard School is one of the most prestigious music schools in the US, if not the most prestigious. Also, the Manhatten School of Music is great, too.
But honestly, it's really hard to judge what the BEST music schools are. Some schools that are said to be absolutely amazing might be absolutely horrible for some people, based on their area of study and their preferences/interests. It really varies. There are a lot of great schools out there.
Are their any good music schools that will take a complete beginner?
I'm 29 and I wish to learn the guitar, but am a complete beginner. Are these any good music schools that will take someone like me without an audition and teach me from the bottom?
Question answered by RoaringMice
Many reputable music schools have extension/continuing education programs which are happy to teach adult beginners. Some of them even offer degrees, which you can apply for once you get your guitar skills to a certain level. But no, no reputable music school will take you in as a degree-seeking student as you are right now.
That doesn't mean you can't learn guitar, and to quite a high level, btw. In fact, if you want to gain college credit for doing so, starting as a beginner, check out your local community colleges. Many of them offer a music major, and you can take private lessons via that program, from the beginning on up. You can also take the classes you'd need to transfer to a good music school - music theory, music history, English, math, etc. So that's certainly an option for you.
You can also simply take guitar lessons via a local music school, if you'd prefer.
What activities are crucial to enter Music school as a guitarist and help me become a better musician?
Hi, I'm 19.
I compose my own songs(some electronic, lots of alternative), play in 2 alternative bands and do part time DJing with a friend.
I'm putting University on hold because I failed getting into music school and "wasted" my first year and a half taking science, language, math and business courses for which my interest waned quickly. This semester, I am studying music theory, history, taking piano, voice and guitar lessons, all outside of University. I'm considering enrolling for some private music production courses. I don't think that career managing seminars are necessary yet. Besides daily practice, playing as many shows as possible and exploring new music, what else can I do to facilitate my entrance in music school and make me a better musician?
Creative answers are welcome! (Not the "Your mom" kind of creative though........now someone is going to answer Your mom.)
Question answered by WebtvDan
First the “Mom” response. All colleges require freshman to learn general education classes. Music school will require Math, language, etc. classes. Might be a waste of time – but necessary for a degree.
Are you aware college guitar is Classical Guitar? Do you even own a classical guitar? Other styles are taught but you’ll start with classical.
Since you need to take Classical Guitar lessons, seek out a graduate of the college you wish to intend. Often it’s not “what” you know – but “who” you know, and a letter from a college alumni accompanying your application will help.
Good luck and have fun~
Acceptance rate for music schools like Curtis and Juilliard?
I was just wondering, since I am a student violinist in high school. I am pretty serious about music, and a lot of professional musicians in my area have gone to places like Curtis and Juilliard. I know that since they are the best music schools in the country, they are very, very hard to get into. Does anyone have any idea what the acceptance rates are? Thanks!
Thank you very much for your input! I know how hard it is to get into these schools. Also, I have a bunch of older friends who are going to Peabody, Indiana, McGill, etc, so I know there are a ton of other good music schools out there. But it doesn't hurt to shoot for the stars, does it? :-)
Question answered by ...
There are other schools that are just as good and even much better in different areas of music...and some schools have strong studios depending on the given faculty member, etc...so, while Julliard my be the best school for someone, University of California San Diego may be the best school for someone else. While I think there is something inimitably special about conservatories, don't immediately discount some of the other major schools at public universities like Indiana or Michigan, especially if you have ever thought about dabbling in composition, theory, music history, computer music, etc. Also, places like NEC, Peabody, Yale, Cleveland, aren't too 2nd rate!
