Great College. The only school for music teachers.
Front Desk Receptionist
It was a overall fun and easy job but there was a lack of communication with the new supervisor, business office and student staff. The faculty is friendly.
Awesome staff and students

As a 1991 Masters of Music Education Graduate of VanderCook, I will be forever grateful to the President and Staff of this grate institution of learning. VaderCook is located in a great Musical/Cultural City and I learned so much from being active in the music scene of Chicago during my tenure at VanderCook. The masters degree also enabled me to matriculate in the Graduate/Certification Program for Secondary School Administration at USC and I am now a retired High School Principal/ Band Director. Thanks VanderCook More...
The instructions given to my daughter during the Band and Choir Festival was excellent!
