Today’s faculty at the Conservatory is stronger than ever, sought after by promising students who are looking for a master teacher to guide them through the intensive, one-on-one studio work that forms a major part of their development. These exceptional artist/teachers guide the student in developing a personal interpretation of the music. They assist with the emotional challenges of performing before the public. They advise on how to build the arc of a career. In many cases they become lifelong musical collaborators.
The addition of major faculty, particularly in strings, piano, and jazz, has brought a fivefold increase in applications for admission in recent years—and a dramatic rise in the quality of students who enroll. NEC’s future growth depends on maintaining its world-class teachers, through endowed chairs, research, and professional development opportunities.
