Preparatory Division

MUSIC PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS AGES 2 TO 18

The mission of the Preparatory Division of The Bard College Conservatory of Music is to offer young people between the ages of 2 and 18 the joy of studying music in the context of a first-class conservatory. The early study of music brings important benefits to young people, touching many areas of their lives: language, motor and social skills, and an appreciation for the value of diligent effort. Most important, music enriches the young person's life and provides a lifetime of enjoyment.
