COME VISIT US!
We find that students who come for even a brief visit gain a
better understanding of what The Boston Conservatory has
to offer. You can arrange a trial lesson with a voice teacher,
sit in on classes and rehearsals, and perhaps even see one of
our productions. We also encourage you to talk with current
students; they can give you their perspectives on daily life at
The Boston Conservatory and what it’s like to live in Boston.
We offer many opportunites for prospective students to visit.
Our busiest days—Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays—will
offer a wider variety of classes and rehearsals, from which you
may choose.
