BURLINGTON, Vt., June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Business degrees have long been offered by America's top online colleges. This year, America's premier music college has jumped on the online bandwagon as well. The Juilliard School of Music is opening an online music education program for school kids and their teachers.
To help students locate the top online colleges for great music careers the editors at GetEducated.com, the consumer's online college rankings guide have compiled a new editorial pick list: Top Online Schools for Students Who Crave Music Careers, a guide to the best in bankable online music education.
"Students don't know where to go for a credible online degree that will hold up in the job market," says Vicky Phillips, founder of GetEducated.com. "The new top online college series is designed to showcase schools whose reputations and online degree programs convert most easily to bankable careers after college."
For potential music careers, everyone thinks "music teacher," but there exist so many more exciting music career options. The Get Educated top picks highlight online music degrees and majors that convert to promising career gigs.
"Whether you burn to perform, or itch to produce, there's an online music degree or course just for you," says Phillips. "The Get Educated top picks showcase how online music schools are evolving to meet the career needs of a new generation of master musicians, producers, and performers."
The Get Educated top online music college picks – other than Juilliard, of course – include Berklee College of Music (Massachusetts), Full Sail University (Florida), Colorado State University (Colorado), and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) (Indiana). MIT also made the online learning honor roll for their collection of free online music courses available through the open source initiative.
Phillips, named "the leading consumer advocate for online college students," in 2009 by U.S. News & World Report, provides editorial direction for the new top online colleges awards program.
"Consumers can rest assured no school paid to be on the Get Educated list of top online music colleges," says Phillips. "These top schools earned their merit badges as hang-outs where online music education is evolving."
