I'M JESS VOIGT-PAGE, AND I AM YOUR COLLEGE PREP COACH!
YOUR SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING YEARS OF YOUR LIFE - ESPECIALLY AS A FUTURE MUSIC MAJOR. 

ITS ALSO ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING, BUSY AND CONFUSING TIMES. 

I REMEMBER ALL TOO WELL WHAT MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL LOOKED LIKE - AND I REMEMBER APPLYING TO COLLEGES. 

"BACK IN MY DAY", WE HAD TO POST PAPER APPLICATIONS TO THE COLLEGES WE WANTED TO ATTEND, AND I WAS SO AFRAID I WOULD DO IT INCORRECTLY, I FILLED OUT EACH FORM THREE TIMES - FIRST IN PENCIL, THEN I WOULD TRACE OVER THE PENCIL IN PEN AND ERASE THE PENCIL UNDERNEATH. 

MY PARENTS DIDNT GO TO COLLEGE FOR MUSIC. MY COLLEGE ADVISOR DIDNT KNOW WHAT I HAD TO DO, SO I FIGURED IT OUT ON MY OWN. 

I DID THIS PROCESS AGAIN FOR GRAD SCHOOL, ONLY THIS TIME  I HAD DECIDED TO MOVE TO THE UNITED STATES FROM AUSTRALIA.

EVERYTHING WAS DONE OVER EMAIL, MAIL AND 2AM PHONE CALLS.

AGAIN, NO ONE WAS ABLE TO HELP ME THROUGH THE PROCESS. 

SINCE 2014, I HAVE BEEN HELPING YOUNG SAXOPHONISTS APPLY TO, AND GET ACCEPTED TO COLLEGE, AND MY STUDENTS HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED TO SOME OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS IN THE US - THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN, THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, THE EASTMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC, THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS AND MANY MORE. 

100% OF MY STUDENTS WHO WISHED TO STUDY MUSIC IN COLLEGE HAVE ACCEPTED POSITIONS AT THEIR CHOSEN SCHOOLS, AND I AM AM VERY EXCITED TO HELP MORE STUDENTS REACH THEIR GOALS - REGARDLESS OF THEIR INSTRUMENT!

 

How many times have I applied for school personally?
