Longy School of Music
Longy School of Music
Bard College
MISSION
Longy's innovative Catalyst Curriculum compels graduate students to explore their artistry and to take risks to build their skills, guided by a world-class faculty that encourages them to push their artistic presentation beyond the proscenium model. Longy promotes profound musical understanding and technical mastery, inspires growth of imagination, and fosters an attitude of inquiry about the musician's role in the world.
Internationally recognized for its efforts to meet a changing musical landscape head-on, Longy gives its graduates the opportunity to perform professionally, teach in a variety of settings, and expand access within classical music.
Longy now offers a time-condensed three-year undergraduate diploma and a range of graduate degrees, including a one-year Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program on our Los Angeles Campus and the new Master of Music in Music Education (MMME) program in Cambridge. It also offers artist diplomas-its highest performance credential-and certificate and license programs.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS SCHOOL
Longy prepares musicians to make a difference in the world with a social imperative that is at the core of the School's curriculum. Breaking down traditional conservatory constraints, Longy students learn to lead meaningful lives in music through project-based courses and performances alongside professional partners.

CAREER / POST-GRADUATION ASSISTANCE
From their first days at Longy, students become a Boston musician, performing professionally with faculty on concert stages around the city. Networking opportunities with an extensive community of musicians and music organizations develop the skills needed to become a successful musician. In addition to performing alongside our professional partners, Longy students can further expand their skills through Teaching Assistantships or Graduate Fellowships, which reduce tuition by up to $10,000 per year. There are also numerous employment opportunities on campus that provide additional income and professional development.
