Play a part in this extraordinary musical community!
For the serious, developing musician, the Conservatory of Music in the School of the Arts at Purchase College offers a distinctive educational experience—an intensive education within the context of a lively supportive community.
Create, integrate, grow, explore, transform
Your artistry will thrive here among other remarkable musicians, all preparing for professional careers while focused on excellence.
Work closely with world-class musicians and educators
Our proximity to New York City makes it possible for you to study with many of the most respected names in music today—and to benefit from their extensive professional experience as performers, composers, and producers. Through private lessons and small-group study, our faculty will guide and mentor you in your career choice. And because the Conservatory of Music limits its enrollment to only 400 students, including undergraduate and graduate candidates, you will receive personal attention and opportunities to perform and hear your music right from the start.
Classical, Jazz, Music and Technology
No matter what program you pursue in the Conservatory of Music, you will be encouraged to play music that spans all genres and to perform in ensembles of all sizes and styles. Let us prepare you to meet the challenges of the music world in the 21st century.
