Longy School of Music of Bard College

Longy School of Music of Bard College prepares musicians to make a difference in the world by providing an education that teaches students to be extraordinary musicians and human beings, while challenging them to find new ways to change the world through music. The music with a social purpose ethos is a the forefront of Longy’s mission statement.

Longy confers the Master of Music degree, the Master of Arts in Teaching degree, Undergraduate Diploma, Graduate Performance Diploma, Artist Diploma, and the Dalcroze Certificate and License. Undergraduate Diploma students can jointly enroll at Emerson College in Boston and pursue the Longy Undergraduate Diploma and Emerson Bachelor of Music degree simultaneously.

My studio at Longy is very selective, consisting mostly of graduate level conservatory students. Longy student successes include Chieh-Hsuan Lee as a semi-finalist for the International Flute Competition Guangzhou (former International Nicolet Competition).
