While studying with some of the best musicians in the country, Longy students develop the skills needed to be a professional musician in a rapidly changing musical landscape. Through the combination of a powerhouse faculty, an amazing curriculum, and a baked-in mission of music equity for social change, students receive the training to engage the world through music.
To augment the classroom curricula, Longy pioneers hands-on learning opportunities in which our students work directly with the community to practice their skills, get feedback, and improve in a continuous cycle.
Longy musicians will discover the myriad ways in which to build audiences and produce innovative concerts and performance art events. We push our students to use Pickman Hall and the entire Longy campus in unexpected ways to make music happen in any setting, with any audience.
