parents of music career-path young adults A college music education can be an expensive investment in a challenging profession. You want to support your son or daughter, but also want to know that your money is well-spent. A program at USSCM is a relatively inexpensive way to find out and is also an excellent strategic move prior to a bricks and mortar program, because well-prepared students routinely reap high benefits from great residential music schools (scholarships, good contacts, better teachers, better ensembles) without having to spend a full four years. That's the inside scoop on way it works and you can save a lot of $. Of course, for dedicated gifted students, USSCM may be all they need. The best time to begin your child's USSCM program is whenever he or she has made a real internal commitment to having a music career. With very precocious individuals, this can begin as early as high school or home-school and as late as necessary. And, the investment also pays off if your child moves on to a different profession, because formal music training is also known to raise IQ and to have many other fringe benefits (social, emotional, etc.), so many employers in non-related fields recognize its value. Please feel free to contact USSCM to discuss your unique needs. MORE...

parents of Home-Schooled students You may have seen Mr. Holland's Opus (and many other popular entertainments involving youngsters) and realize that music training is a life-long gift that enhances social skills, second-brain emotional processing, and can open many other doors. Once again, the best time to begin your child's USSCM program is whenever he or she has made a real internal commitment to having a music career. With very precocious individuals, this can begin as early as high school or home-school and as late as necessary. USSCM adapts its programs for precocious students as young as 11 years who have shown musical promise or great interest. If you have questions about the value of music training we will be happy to forward corrollary materials and have a conversation with you about your child's unique needs. MORE...
