Our Musical Community

New England Conservatory is a world-renowned institution with a rigorous curriculum, as well as a uniquely collaborative culture where you will be encouraged to explore. You will find the support and freedom to develop your individual musicianship and prepare for the path ahead.

I’ve loved every teacher I had here. I’ve also learned just as much from other students as I have from the staff. Everyone has been super supportive.
