  • Compose their college application essay

  • Direct the application process

Our students have earned extremely generous talent scholarships at their best fit colleges. This includes top conservatories, conservatory style programs as well as schools of music including Juilliard, Berklee, NEC, Rice, Northwestern, USC, and UCLA.

Sheet Music

I truly enjoy directing musical performers to live their dream. At Best College Consulting, we orchestrate the college search for talented students. 


I applaud parents who invest in their child’s success as I do for our aspiring professional classical musician. Families who hire us recognize that music admissions is quite different than navigating into college for the sciences, business or humanities. 


My industry association, IECA, selected me to host a roundtable session on music admissions at our international convention of college counselors in Austin, Texas. I brought together music admission directors from top music programs to help educate other counselors on how this unique process works.
