Message from the Director

Welcome to the Instrumental Music Conservatory page, serving the Piano, Guitar, Strings & Orchestra, and Winds & Jazz Studies programs. Here, you will find resources and information to help you get connected to our conservatory. The Instrumental Music programs are designed to be a pre-professional training ground that helps students bridge the gap to higher education and the professional world. With a dedicated faculty of teaching artists and extensive performance opportunities, students are immersed in a nurturing but rigorous music program that both challenges and assists them in reaching their goals. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions regarding our program at
