Classical PERFORMANCE

GET INTO THE BEST PROGRAM FOR YOU

The music performance major is the heart and soul of any musical education. Students who pursue performance programs can apply it to many facets of the music industry.

Many players ask themselves whether music performance is the right degree to build a career. The prospects are promising.

With the guidance of our consultants and their list of best-fit music performance schools in hand, an IMS student has a greatly increased chance of getting into the school that is right for them.

Musical performances are driven by their players, and the energy of the live music industry shows no signs of waning. Performance majors possess an ability to relay music experiences in real-time that is valuable to many fields.

Performance majors can become touring musicians, studio musicians, instructors, and authors of their craft. They can teach while maintaining a rigorous gigging career and publish writings that inspire current and future players of their instrument or genre.

Inside Music Schools’ in-depth admissions programs prepare students to apply confidently to the best programs that fit their needs. With one-on-one support, we determine what drives you. With mock auditions, you prepare to inspire admissions staff and faculty. With interviews from faculty, alumni, and people in the industry, you’ll know where you’re going.
