Is being surrounded by other passionate young artists music to your ears?
The Walnut Hill Music Department is the only high school program linking a major conservatory, New England Conservatory (NEC), with an independent school. This partnership engages our students in a comprehensive music curriculum delivered both at NEC and at Walnut Hill. Students can major in an orchestral instrument, piano, voice, composition, or jazz. The curriculum is enhanced by innovative performance projects, master classes by dynamic guest artists, and the thoughtful integration of contemporary topics such as entrepreneurship and civic engagement. Walnut Hill’s proximity to Boston allows students to attend a wide variety of concerts by major ensembles and soloists at the city's world-class concert halls. Our program, offered within an inspiring creative community, prepares graduates to thrive in a conservatory, university, or college setting.
