So I’m almost ready to start submitting applications in summer and fall for spring ’16 or fall ’16 semesters at universities in California. I’m just about done with Jr. College save for 3 Gen. Ed classes, and one more round private lessons in Music Composition until my Jr. Qualifying. I’ve started building up a portfolio and even working on some projects for grad students at a nearby university. I was just wondering if anyone knows any good programs or what kind of programs I should apply for. I’m really interested in sound design but my passion is definitely in music composition. I’m working on self teaching myself implementation programs like fmod and wwise, it’s just hard figuring out as far as education what will be beneficial to me and what will not. My dream school would be the SF Conservatory of Music, besides that top pick would be UC Santa Cruz, CSU Northridge, CSU Fullerton and San Jose State in that order and I am thinking about doing Music Composition with a focus in Electronic music, but I don’t really know what I’m doing and no teacher or counselor I’ve met knows anything about Video game music/audio. So I always feel like I’m just going at this endeavor alone and blindly which is scary. Anyone who has gone to any of these programs or a different program that they found helpful would be great! I just don’t know where to go from here and I’m honestly very scared about transferring schools.
