SuccessfulStudent.org just named its Top 25 Music Programs in the country, and Belmont’s School of Music was ranked No. 19. The website noted the importance of personal skills, connections and the reputation of one’s school for graduates to obtain the upper ground in a competitive job market. The ranking took into consideration each school’s overall reputation, acceptance rate, diversity of programs offered and success of alumni in its listing.
Dr. Stephen Eaves, dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts, said, “The Belmont School of Music is pleased to be recognized nationally as a top music program. We are committed to the highest standard of excellence and providing serious study of all musical styles. We actively mentor and equip students to reach their potential and become musical leaders in the 21st century.”
