In addition to federal and state financial aid, Frost offers the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation Music Scholarship, which awards special scholarships to select freshman to form chamber ensembles and covers full tuition and room & board. The University of Miami also offers addition undergraduate scholarships.

If you need additional support to help fund other expenses, you can apply through FAFSA to maximize opportunities for receiving financial aid. Grants and loans from FAFSA can help pay for additional costs at Frost.

Is Frost Right for Me?

To begin, it’s important to first address the size of Frost and the University of Miami. As for Frost itself, the student body is around 700 students, which is on the large side for a music school.

Things get bigger when you add the total student body of the University at Miami, which is approximately 17,000 students total. You’ll also have to take into account the University of Miami’s reputation as a party school (most sites place it firmly in the top 25 party schools in the U.S.).

This may or may not be your cup of tea and, of course, partying is optional. You could simply find other (and more productive) avenues to fill your personal time. There is also the city of Miami to consider. To put it succinctly, it isn’t a quiet, dull city to say the least.

That said, the Frost School of Music is known for attracting serious musicians dedicated to both their craft and academic study. Musicians looking to maximize their investment in music school should seriously consider Frost, the high employment rate after graduation and focus on the music industry make the school an extremely attractive choice.


For Frost and many other schools, the application process can be confusing and difficult to navigate. There are many parts to understanding how to truly and successfully succeed in the audition process.

At Music School Central, all of our students work closely with Bill Zuckerman, President of Music School Central, as well as his team of talented associates.
