Mission

The Longy School of Music prepares musicians to make a difference in the world. Longy is a degree-granting conservatory and community-based school of preparatory and continuing studies with a curriculum rooted in the tradition of Western art music. Its faculty promotes profound musical understanding and technical mastery, encourages growth of imagination, and fosters an attitude of inquiry about the role of music and the musician in the larger world. We make a school-wide commitment to uphold uncompromising standards of musical excellence, provide an expert faculty for all of our students, offer programs that provide our students with opportunities to engage with the world in new ways, and help each student realize his or her individual potential. We value the transformational power of music, the joy of making and sharing music with others, the art of teaching, honest ongoing assessment, respect for the individual, a diverse and supportive community, dynamic interaction with the larger world, creative thought and innovation, the freedom to explore, and advocacy for our art.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Longy offers three major areas of musical study: Conservatory, Preparatory Studies and Continuing Studies. In the fall of 2007, the Conservatory enrolled 223 students from 37 states and 31 countries, including 52 undergraduates and 171 graduate students. These students enjoy a rare opportunity to work as colleagues-in-training with Longy's gifted faculty, a group of 142 artist-teachers. Excellence, rigor, support and collaboration are hallmarks of the Longy Conservatory education, and many recent graduates have gone directly into the ranks of major performing organizations worldwide. The Conservatory offers the following programs of study: Master of Music Degree, Graduate Performance Diploma, Artist Diploma, Dalcroze Certificate and License, Undergraduate Diploma, and Bachelor of Music Degree (with Emerson College). Majors are offered in chamber music, collaborative piano, composition, Dalcroze eurhythmics, early music, modern American music, opera, organ, piano, strings, vocal performance, woodwinds and brass. Preparatory Studies currently serves more than 700 children (ages 12 months to 18 years), and Continuing Studies has an enrollment of 230 adults, ranging from serious beginners to professionals continuing their music education. Students in these programs receive lesson and course instruction in a variety of instruments, voice, and theory and composition; also available are chamber music ensembles, choral and orchestral studies. We provide scholarships to economically disadvantaged children to pursue musical studies at Longy. We also provide outreach programs that bring music to public schools in the Greater Boston region.
