Music School Rankings
In the US, a whole industry has arisen focused on the ranking of universities and colleges. While there is no specific ranking of undergraduate music schools, national and international organizations such as US News & World Report (colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com), The Washington Monthly (washingtonmonthly.com, 2011) and the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) (usnews.com/education, 2011) based in Shanghai, China, regularly publish general rankings designed to identify the "best" graduate and undergraduate schools and programs according to quality and value. Less "official" rankings can also be found in resources like StudentsReview, Rugg's Recommendations on the Colleges, and Community College Week. Music programs do, however, sometimes get a special mention: the Kaplan/ Newsweek guide lists "Hottest Schools for Music," and even Rolling Stone published a guidebook identifying "Schools That Rock." Some professional associations may also have reports from student surveys about various schools and programs, which provide still more school or program "rankings." Other associations--for example the Music Teachers National Association--offer awards and honors for teaching excellence, and looking at who they have honored can also be used to supplement your 'ranking' of schools.
