About the Classical Voice Conservatory

The Classical Voice Conservatory is designed as a college preparatory program focused on vocal arts. This program is ideal for young singers interested in learning about the fundamentals of classical singing and those who may someday choose to pursue a career in singing or music teaching. Modeled after well established collegiate vocal arts programs, the Classical Voice Conservatory curriculum is balanced between performance-focused classes and academic music courses.

Student Experience

Students in this conservatory are immersed in the fundamental elements of music, such as: theory, musicianship, history, diction, and piano classes, as well as classes focused on solo and ensemble singing, such as art song literature, piano/vocal collaboration, opera scenes, choral ensembles, and class voice. Students also benefit from the knowledge, experience, and high caliber education of the faculty, consisting of music professionals, most of whom have a master’s degree in music and/or ten years or more of experience in the professional music industry. Renowned guest artists, university faculty, and industry leaders visit the school’s campus to share their expertise and creativity through residencies, master classes, lectures, performances, presentations, and hands-on training. The conservatory offers a number of unique and exciting performance opportunities, such as choir concerts, Composer’s Night, Opera Scenes, an opera production and a solo recital. Every four years, students also have the opportunity to participate in an international tour.

  • “Instructors are phenomenal and very supportive. Universities know the school; I found out representatives attended performances and knew of me before I applied to their programs.”
