Anyone know of a college in the SW with good music program?--specifically in piano : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread

I am a junior in HS and am looking for my future prospects for a career in music. Im looking for colleges that might have good music programs, especially piano, in the Southwest. I've heard that New Mexico State has pretty good one. Any suggestions?

Are you looking only at public schools? The University of Southern California has a renowned music department.

If you're looking at liberal arts colleges, Pomona has a good music department.

Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, also the University of North Texas in Denton,Texas. Can't say about UNT, but SMU has a respected piano pedagogy program.

Arizona State University has one of the world's best music programs.

UNT is also good. Consider Rice and the University of Houston. (Nancy Weems at UH has a VERY strong studio.)

I'm also a graduate of LSU. Not quite southwest, but their piano faculty is FANTASTIC.
