Music school can mean many different things and will vary widely from one place to another. There is also a wide range of different styles of music that go into making music such as classical, jazz, punk, new age, etc. There are also genres like R&B, rap, soul, pop, etc. which have developed their own particular styles. In general a music school will focus on one form of music or genre. One example would be if a music school were to specialize in Jazz, which would focus on both classical and improvised forms. Music schools are generally divided by the type of school. Conservatories focus on training students to perform all types of music including voice and instrumentation. Other music schools are designed for specific styles of performing arts. One example would be performing arts schools which focus on Jazz andocal/ instrumental music. Another example would be performing arts schools which focus on performing arts such as plays, music, motion picture, etc. There are many different ways to get into a music school. The best music schools usually have a very good reputation and often get very good applicants. Attending an audition is one way to determine if a potential student is talented enough to attend the school. Auditions for these conservatories are generally done during the summer before the start of each school year. The top music schools are also well known for their internship programs and this can be a great advantage for the student as they will get to meet other like minded students and learn from them.
