 RE: Grad Schools for Clar. Performance

What a wide open question! There's plenty to choose from, but you're the one who's going to have to make the decision. Is there some player in the US or other country that you admire? Do they teach? What are their requirements? When are you prepared to audition?

After you've got those question answered, then it's money time - how much of a stipend can you expect, if any? Scolarships? What are the performance opportunities at the school and the surrounding environs? Does the teacher have a good record for placement in your chosen area (performance, teaching, etc.)?

Do you really need a graduate degree? Is the extra 2 or 3 years going to help you career wise, or should you be looking at a job in the area first, and take more courses as you have time? IMHO, a job in a (most probably) minor orchestra would be a better idea, since experience on your resume' is going to count for a lot. Perhaps private lessons with a well-known teacher or player would cost much less and bring the same results.
