The acronym for New England Conservatory, a music school in Boston.
NEC beats the shit out of CIM, MSM, and any other three-letter-acronym music schools!
|2.||Mannes College of Music|
One of the three main conservatories in New York City, the other being the Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of Music. Smaller than its counterparts and criminally underfunded, Mannes has earned a reputation for having demanding theory and ear training curricula. While the quality of its students vary from moderate to abhorrently terrible, the kids come out knowing slightly more than the average conservatory student given that the school actually teaches the student something outside their instrument. Notable students and graduates include Frederica von Stade, Murray Perahia, George Rochberg, Myung-Whun Chung, and Lara St John, among others.
Mannes is currently under the ownership of The New School, a pretentious, poorly administered university system based in lower Manhattan that always succeeds at making itself look better than it actually is. Fortunately, Mannes is one of the more independent schools currently owned by The New School, even if it still has to bear the mark of the university system's name in its "proper", verbose title: "Mannes College The New School for Music"
An aspiring pianist from Afghanistan
Became a devout Byron Janis fan
Wrote he, “Who can learn me
To master my Czerny?”
Replied pianist Janis, “The Mannes can.”
Violinist (applying for a job): "I hold a B.M. from the Mannes College of Music in violin performance."
Interviewer: "How do you feel this school has helped you as a performer?"
Violinist: "Well, I still sound like I did when I was a sophomore in high school, but at least now I can read in seven clefs!"
Music is a sound in which people can listen to in order to feel good about something or change their mood. Plese, do not call rap "crap". Yes, I Indeed agree that 50 Cent and Chingy are some of the most talentless people in the history of mankind but keep an open mind to the underground and old school "B-Boy" aspects of hip-hop. Yes, around 1998 is the time at which hip-hop turned for the worst. Also, hip-hop artists such as shiffai and wa gubla of senegal are extremely talented, do not judge a genre of musice solely on the shit that you are exposed to.
Celly Cel and E-40 are TRU to the game. They made gangsta rap what it is now. Eric B. and Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest, Onyx, Wu Tang are some of the old schools most cherichable, pay attention to these once infamous leaders of a disregarded genre of music. Pleases mind that what you might enjoy, someone else might hate. Everything intended to be music is in fact music.
involves an understanding of the elements of music, musical forms, musical styles, and periods. The cultivation of an understanding and senstive awareness of music. to have an undying passionate love for the greatest thing on earth... music!
Music appreciation should be a required subject in schools.
Awesome rock and roll band from the awesome old days when music ruled.He sold out in the 80's and made shitty heavy metal but we'll forgive him because he used to fucking rock.
Alice Cooper is classic rock.Regardless of face paint and theatrics and the shock rock descriptions people are using to describe him with , Alice Cooper music was about the music and not just a bunch of mindless shock rock bullshit of no musical value like today's retards make.
High school in San Jose. Kick-ass nationally known music program. Everything else...not so great. ok test scores. Course offerings suck compared to nearby schools. Only seems to care about preparing students for community college, so the smart kids don't know how to get into a competitive college. White, hispanic, and asian. Occasional geniuses, retards that think they're smart, and retards that don't think.
Many graduates become music majors, or at least the ones that do go to college.
1. Smart (but not informed) student: What, we have to take the SAT to get into a competitive college? Leigh High School never told me that!
2. Random fankid in Ohio: Wow, you're part of the LEIGH high school music program??? OMG!!!!!!!
3. Leigh student 1: I'm taking AP American History!
Leigh student 2: But you suck at history...you can't even write a decent essay.
Leigh 1: So? It's open enrollment!
Leigh 2: *groans*
4. Leigh student: I want to take AP Calculus BC sometime!
Counselor: Sorry, we don't have that. Only AB & AP Stats.
Student: Japanese? Italian? German? American Sign Language?
Counselor: Nope, that was a long time ago. Only Spanish and French.
Student: Woodshop? Metals? Auto?
Counselor: Don't have it.
Student:um, how about band?
Counselor: Which one?
A devoted fan of the southern, blues, rock and rhythm band Widespread Panic. This flip-flop wearing person typically grasps the exemplary sound and contagious vibe of good energy promoted, sought after and achieved by the players in the band. Although many fans come off as dopers who have only passion in life - the Panic - they are a diverse group of music lovers out to have a blow-out good time and leave with memories of living it up right.
Regardless of their attire, language and private lives, when a spreadhead goes to a Panic show, he or she becomes one of many and reveres the warmth of anonymity and unquestioned unity. Often a spreadhead will perform worship rituals and close his or her eyes while swaying to and fro.
Spreadhead #1: "Man, when I heard Walking at Red Rocks in '93 I almost crapped my pants and then I proposed to my now wife right there and then."
Spreadhead #2: "Yeah, bro, I tripped harder than I ever will again when I saw Mikey play Airplane for the last time. And you know what, man? I didn't even take any drugs..."
Panic show virgin: "I'm sorry guys, but this is my first Panic show and your contest vying for the most devoted fan is keeping me from enjoying it."
Spreadheads: "Whoa, sorry babe. Rock on, Schools!"
