December 20, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
New York, N.Y., (PRLEAP) December 20, 2007 – Bridge to Music LLC, with the goal of providing the broadest and most comprehensive information about music schools, festivals, conservatories and workshops, has launched the Bridge to Music web site ( The new online resource has an comprehensive directory that includes not only lists of music schools but also festivals and workshops.

While the Internet is brimming with search engines, directories, and other resources, student musicians did not have a place to go when exclusively looking for a music school or program. The usual online school listings and directories focus their criteria on too wide a range of college features when helping students that may be looking to choose a music university education. Students of music did not have a resource that catered to their unique search needs, until now.

Bridge to Music has made a point of specializing in music schools and programs exclusively. Before Bridge to Music, a student researching and making comparisons of music programs did not have a one-stop search destination that was up to the task of refining their research. Music students either relied solely on word of mouth or spent a significant amount of time searching through countless school web sites.

David Usui, one of the founders of, has offered an invitation to music students, “We have a listing of over 2,000 music schools, festivals and workshops, so come to the site and really do a thorough analysis of the vast opportunities that are out there. As a former music student myself, I know that choosing which school to invest time and money in is no small thing. We provide a lot of really valuable information to help make the choice more of an educated one.”

Visitors to the site use an easy and fun graphic interface to search for the right program. With a few clicks, users can match a chosen instrument, musical type, degree program and preferred location. Once an institution is found, requesting for more information directly from the school is made simple by filling out the request form that is conveniently located on the same page. Bridge to Music also has a “Featured Schools” section for profiling some of the more prominent institutions that use the site to reach out to online searchers.

“The site is a new tool for musicians that simplifies the search for the perfect music program,” said Devin Young, co-founder of Bridge to Music. “No other education directory combines such a broad school listing with an easy-to-use, interactive interface.” is free for users. Programs themselves receive a basic listing on the website for free, but can upgrade their site profile by purchasing one of the company’s more comprehensive packages.
