in music through Guelph or Waterloo? Is there really much of a difference between music at Guelph or

Laurier has a really strong program, but it's insanely competitive. When I looked into Guelph's music program, I found it very weak, but if you're just interested in general knowlege of music that would be a good place to go. There's also no audition for Guelph music, which can either be an advantage or a disadvantage. Conrad Grebel at Waterloo might be a good choice as well, but when I visited I found it to be quite small and hole-like. Waterloo has a stronger music program than Guelp, but there is still only one professor for each instrument.

Depending on how competitive you want your program to be, I would probably say Waterloo is the middle ground. If you want general, go to Guelph. Competitive, go to Laurier.
