I live in Bradenton, Florida and I was wondering what are some good music colleges. I am interested in Music Performance and Education, I have 3.5ish GPA, and I can't pay for my tuition.

Thanks!

You can't pay for tuition, or you're too lazy to get a job to help pay for tuition? Or are you too lazy to fill out the necessary paperwork, or do the research for grants, scholarships and student loans?

Favorite music colleges have been discussed quite a bit on this site in the past. Do a quick search and you'll find many threads already in existence.

Because music majors have time to work enough to pay tuition

I found time. All my roommates found time. Most the people I hung out with that were music majors found time.

I think unless he's going to an in-state public school, Jason is going to have a near-impossible time paying for his education with a job.

On the other hand, at my school, the music majors I know have more free time than most people, even after they're done practicing for whatever music majors practice for (I acknowledge my ignorance here). Most pick up a second major, and those that don't often graduate early.

I'm not saying majoring in music is easy by any means, but from my observations it is far easier to find time to work a job majoring in music than in engineering or science.

I think that just depends on how much work you put into your education. I know a lot of music majors at my school that do 2-3 hours of practicing a day and can go out and work. I also know many people that practice 6-8 hours a day and have no free time during the week. If you do not want to put in a lot of work, then your free time will increase. If you spend a lot of time practicing and studying, then it might be harder to find time to work.

Typical day for me this semester as a music ed major:

Class from about 8 till noon
After noon, I either have wind symphony rehearsal, or I practice.
Mondays and Wednesdays, I teach my high school line until 5
Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have evening classes from 3:30 until 7, then I practice
Friday nights were high school football games

Monday and Wednesday nights I work retail straight after rehearsal. I also work weekends, when there isn't a marching band competition.

Overall, I work retail maybe 15-20 hours a week and teach 10-15, on top of my classes. I'm also about to pick up 4 private students, so that's another 4 hours of work on saturdays. All this in addition to class, homework, and minimum 2 hours of practice per day.

I do work. But I don't have time during the week to leave campus to go to my job so I only work Sat-Sun and make like $100
