Director's Welcome Message

Dear Instrumental Music Conservatory Families, 

Welcome to the information platform for the Instrumental Music Conservatory. This information platform will serve as our main point of communication with both our current, and prospective, students and families! The Instrumental Music Conservatory is a college/conservatory preparatory program for wind, percussion, string, piano, and guitar students. The conservatory is divided into four separate programs: Winds & Jazz Program, Strings & Orchestra Program, Pianist Program, and Guitar Program. Each program provides a customized curriculum that is specific to the instruments in each program. Students in each program will have access to large ensembles, chamber music, master/methods courses, music theory courses, and music history courses.

Throughout the year, students will participate in a number of performances and festivals, as well as master classes with guest artists and conductors. I'd like to invite you to explore our upcoming performances/events on our calendar to stay up-to-date with the happenings of the Instrumental Music Conservatory.


To the fore, 

Jeffrey E. de Seriere II
Director, Instrumental Music
