People know Julliard for it's name but do they really know any classical music legends born from Julliard? For heavens sake, even Yo Yo Ma left Julliard after 1 year.

If you are talking about schools in the US you have to put Curtis above Juilliard. I have studied at top schools in both the US and in Europe, I have to say that the level in Europe is absolutely higher.

Yes, the Udk Wien is a very good school as is Berlin, Paris, New York... But you cannot state that one is better than an other. I am sick of these rankings... It is the same orchestras, why do we always look for a best one. Don't forget that these are just schools, you have to make your personal experience and not base on ranking

As a piano student at University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna, I can easily say that it is not only one of the best music schools in Europe, but also in the world. The level of the piano departement is very very high. The piano professors are all great pianists with international concert careers. The school has around 13-14 buildings, as well as a beautiful campus. And of course, it goes without saying that Vienna is one of the best cities to live in.

Excellent piano department. Very tuff to get in. Out of 140 application, only 15 is selected this year (2014) . The school is offering BA and Ma degrees together so it is 6 year of education. Facilities are great. Fee is symbolic and 700 euro per year. Organizes very well known international competitions such as Bethoveen piano comp. Compare with other schools in Europe and the USA, it is far better in terms of cost, city life, faculty member quality and numbers, student body, and environment.

You go to a conservatory to be a musician, not to know about music. If you want to perform, conduct, compose, or conduct, you have to go to a conservatory, and the Royal Academy is the best place around. Only the Moscow Conservatory, Juilliard, Curtis, Paris, Vienna, Mozarteum Salzburg, and Royal College (London) are on the same league.

I study at the RAM Junior Academy on Saturdays, and the standard is incredible - I have just passed my ATCL Viola DIploma with Distinction (aged 17) and I might just be able to scrape through the audition for undergraduate study, but the general consensus is that the RAM gives a very narrow musical education - my first choice will be the Joint course between manchester uni and the RNCM so that i can study music, not just performing.
Added 2 years ago by guest, -1 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
You need to be a professional already to get a place there, plus it helps if before the audition you pay for some private lessons with the teacher you want to study with.

My feeling about the RAM is that the Academy doesn't train amazing soloists (although they have such as Vengerov, F. Kempf), but they rather train terrific orchestral musicians. In every major orchestra I have played (Berlin Phil, NY Phil, Met Opera, Frankfurt Radio, Scala, Cocnertgebow) there are always a couple of RAM alumni.

Far too elitist. It's true that many alumni get places in major orchestras around the world, but you have to spend years kissing asses at the Royal Academy in order to be included in good masterclasses, workshops or get soloist opportunities. If you are a violin god and you are good promoting yourself it's the best place for you... if you are just good go somewhere else.
