Higher Ed Programs

This list is focused on popular and commercial music programs that include voice performance elements in the curriculum, along with other necessary skills sets such as songwriting, music business, and music technology.

The list does not include music technology/industry/business programs with no performance elements, nor jazz programs or commercial programs that are basically just jazz studies with some music technology tacked on.

A Note about Jazz Programs:

For now, we’re distinguishing popular/commercial music from jazz. We’ve included programs that mesh the two. Our initial studies about these academic programs and their curriculums show that most popular/commercial programs are often noticeably different from most jazz programs. Please feel free to share your thoughts about this decision in the comments.
