Longy School of Music of Bard College

The Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts, became a part of Bard College in April 2012. Longy has historically served undergraduate and graduate students, children, and adults in the Boston area. Longy degree programs offer rigorous yet flexible training that develops not only musicians’ technical and expressive skills but also their identity as articulate advocates for art music. The partnership enables Longy to focus on expanding masters programs for aspiring musician-performers in other parts of the country, and furthers Bard's commitment to exceptional music education for students of all ages. Longy and Bard have also partnered with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to launch Take a Stand, a national music education initiative.
