The state of education in the United States is progressing towards
a fast-serve methodology. Have you ever noticed that standardization
can move creativity aside? How many of us have desired a more personal
one-on-one encounter with an instructor, only to get lost in a sea of large
classes - where you, the student, are literally known as a number, rather
than as a human being with a name!
For centuries, some students have found a better way: Attend a research
institute that will nurture your interests and provide a conducive atmosphere
for learning. The pedagogical traditions at the American Conservatory
have, for over a century, stood the test of time. ACM's Pulitzer Prize-
winning Alumni are shining examples of the potential that is available in
every person, given the opportunity to succeed.
