Probably a question that has a different answer depending on
which college you ask. First they have to offer both for degree, probably a
pretty limited number of universities that offer both flute performance and
physical therapy degrees. A few more that offer music education and physical
therapy. There are books and maybe websites that list such information.

Jenn... I just read a couple of your posts and I wanted to
respond to the one about Juilliard and Manhattan, and your desire to play in
Broadway shows and movies. Well, to start, you sound just like me about 4 years
ago!!! Shoot for the stars, that's all I can say about Juilliard and Manhattan.
I applied to Juilliard my senior year of high school (the last year they had
open auditions and anyone could go and audition - now you have to send in a
preliminary tape and get invited, same with Manhattan). Although I didn't even
make it close to qualifying for the final rounds at Juilliard, I'm SOOO glad I
did it. It was such a great learning experience and had the chance to play for
Jeanne Baxtresser, Carol Wincenc, and Julius Baker (quite a nerve-racking
experience too). Now, I'm going through the process all over again for grad
school, and reapplied to Juilliard, and am waiting nervously to see if I made it
past the preliminary round. And again, the same with Manhattan. To get to the
part about shows and movie recordings. Well, there's something a little
unfortunate about a lot of Broadway shows. A lot of the books are "Reed" books
meaning you usually have to play flute, piccolo, clarinet and sax. I played in
the pit for a lot of children's theatre productions, (fun, fun, fun!) and
sometimes they were only flute books, but a lot of the time I would transpose
the clarinet and sax parts so I could play. Unfortunately, I don't think
Broadway shows allow that. In terms of movie recordings, it's all about LA. Jim
Walker teaches at USC and is pretty much king of flute in the movie recording
industry. He would be someone to study with if that's what you really want to
pursue. Also, there are a number of other music careers that people have already
mentioned. I've thought about dropping out of performance and becoming an Arts
Admin major. I would love to be a part of all the behind work that goes on at a
symphony or other big arts organization. But, you're in high school and are
still young (I bet you hate hearing that) [:)] and I guess so am I, but the
point is you have time to decide what it is that you want to do in life. I would
say if you want to major in music, go for it! If you find that half way through
you don't like it anymore change or even after you graduate it doesn't mean
that's what you're stuck with for the rest of your life. Like I said earlier,
aim for the stars!!
