Performing Arts Courses Go Viral

The foundation of education is always advancing. But who would have thought you'd ever be able to learn art and music from a prestigious arts school in the privacy of your own home?

The foundation of education is always advancing. But who would have thought you’d ever be able to learn art and music from a prestigious arts school in the privacy of your own home? Well, thanks to Connections Education, you can!

It has recently been announced, beginning in the 2012–2013 school year, that The Juilliard School is teaming up with Connections Education—part of the well-known global learning company Pearson—to launch the conservatory’s first ever group of online courses for K–12 students and educators. The Juilliard eLearning program will consist of music and other related courses developed at the same high standards set by both parties. Together, the partners combine Juilliard’s exceptional history with performing arts education and Connections Education’s credible reputation with online learning. Who wouldn't want to give it a try?  

According to Joseph W. Polisi, President of the Juilliard School, being a part of this program will enable the school to accomplish a goal he has always wanted for Juilliard: to provide arts education programs to the youth as well as surrounding communities. The eLearning program will start by offering elementary, middle school, and high school music, and they’re considering including courses such as music theory, music history, drama history, or dance history in years to come. Each course will provide learning materials from both Juilliard’s experts and Connections Education’s certified teachers.

One of the benefits of Juilliard offering online classes: location doesn't matter! For those students that couldn't attend Juilliard because it was simply out of reach or too far from home, online classes now allow students to not go any further than their own living room. Dreams everywhere are coming true for those students that could once only wish to attend such a world-famous arts school.

This whole website has helped me overcome the attitude I had before. I was scared to even approach the thought of college because it was so much. I knew it wasn’t just a few easy steps, and I panicked mostly, instead of actually trying. Without realizing it, CollegeXpress did exactly what I usually do when I panic, which is take it one step at a time. With college I forget that because it’s more than just a small to-do list, but this website was really helpful and overall amazing. So thank you!

My favorite part of CollegeXpress is that it features student writers so I get an inside perspective from students slightly older and farther along than me. I realize that other college websites also utilize student writers; however, I relate the most to the college writers that I read articles from on CollegeXpress.

CollegeXpress has helped me find scholarships for the colleges I applied to. It was very hard for me to find scholarships in the beginning that I was qualified for. My teachers recommended this website to find some, and not only did I find some scholarships but I also got to look into some schools I hadn’t heard of before. I was very happy to have discovered this website, especially with the coronavirus spreading all over as I can’t really go visit many colleges.

CollegeXpress really helped me by letting me know the colleges ratings and placements. They gave me accurate information on my colleges tuition rates and acceptance. They even let me know the ration between students and faculty and the diversity of the college. Overall they told me everything I needed and things I didnt even think I needed to know about my college and other colleges I applied for.

My college search began at CollegeXpress. Due to this helpful tool, I was able to gather a lot of information to guide my college planning decisions. Through CollegeXpress, I was also able to apply to several scholarships to help pay for my tuition. I would definitely recommend this website to anyone who wants to explore colleges and get more information from admission experts, counselors, and real students.
