Welcome to NEC

A year of musical growth, discovery, and joy is underway, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you!

Integrative Curriculum


NEC’s new Integrative Curriculum weaves together the many strands of a conservatory education, including music history, performance, composition and entrepreneurship, in fresh and dynamic ways. The result: NEC students graduate as holistic musicians with the tools and creative confidence to make a transformative artistic and social impact on their careers — and on the wider world.



Systemic racism, unconscious bias, and white supremacy generate countless imbalances of equity, equality, and access. We must examine ourselves, and systematically advance respect, equity, and justice—within NEC first, throughout our field more broadly, and ultimately across society.

Prep Eurhythmics Class
