Visit the School of Music

At School of Music, you’ll experience conservatory-style instruction within a major research university. While there is nothing like being on campus to experience Boston University, we have introduced many opportunities for you to connect with the BU College of Fine Arts community and speak with us virtually.

Why School of Music?

Within School of Music, you’ll join a vibrant community of artists in a city where music matters. You’ll study under an accomplished and dedicated faculty, including Boston Symphony Orchestra members, Pulitzer Prize winners, GRAMMY nominees, and Guggenheim fellows.
