Frost School Stands Out in “Best of” Lists

The Hollywood Reporter and InTune Magazine included Frost in their annual lists of top music schools.
The Frost School of Music at the University of Miami has been named to not just one, but two important ‘Best of’ lists. 
The Hollywood Reporter, the entertainment industry bible, put the Frost School in its 2023 list of the world’s 20 best music schools. And InTune Magazine, a top resource for music students, included Frost as one of its 2024 Best Music Schools.
Together, the two accolades give the Frost School a boost in stature and visibility at both ends of the college experience: as a place for young people to get their musical education, and as a source of talent for prospective employers and collaborators.
The Hollywood Reporter also publishes lists of the best film, acting, entertainment law, costume design and visual effects programs, making them a kind of entertainment industry version of U.S. News and World Report’s college ranking lists. To choose the music programs for its November feature, THR polled industry groups like Hollywood’s Society of Composers and Lyricists and music branch members of the Motion Picture Academy and Television Academy. The Frost School entry focused on how the Frost Method gives students the technological, entrepreneurial and business skills, as well as artistic training, they need to succeed. THR also cited Frost’s media scoring and production degrees (hello Hollywood), and location in the “red-hot Miami art scene” with its opportunities for “Gigs, gigs, gigs!”  
The lengthy feature at InTune, an online magazine aimed at middle and high school music students and teachers, explains the complex process of applying to college music programs, from choosing a major to prescreening and interviews. Frost viola professor Jodi Levitz is quoted giving advice on auditioning, saying “A distinctive sound and a clear desire to communicate through music always stands out.”
Just like the Frost School continues to stand out.
