At the Lawrence Conservatory of Music, we believe that to achieve one’s full musical potential, a musician needs to go beyond the practice room and nurture the intellectual growth offered through the breadth and depth of a liberal arts education.
In this exciting, ever-changing world we live in, consummate core musicianship needs to be paired with intellectual agility, cross-disciplinary problem solving, bold creativity, and an entrepreneurial mindset. As a world-class conservatory within a world-class liberal arts university, we are uniquely positioned to deliver the holistic music education required for the 21st century.
