Walnut Hill School for the Arts

Instrumental (Classical)

Instrumental students benefit from a combined program delivered both on campus at Walnut Hill and at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School in Boston. Chamber music is central to our on-campus program and includes many performance opportunities both here and off-campus. Our curriculum is enhanced by innovative performance projects, weekly masterclasses with dynamic guest artists, and the thoughtful integration of contemporary topics like entrepreneurship and civic engagement. Our instrumental majors graduate uniquely prepared to succeed in a conservatory, university, or college environment.
