“Get to know the professors you could be spending your next four or five years with! Around my junior year of high school, I attended a camp offered here at the College of Musical Arts. During my week, I was given opportunities to work and perform with several members of the faculty, staff and already existing students. It was this experience that was my deciding factor in choosing a college. The faculty was amazing and the whole atmosphere was welcoming. The Junior Audition Day in which I also participated only confirmed things more for me.”
