Let your musical passions take center stage.

Our students improvise soaring jazz solos, play in orchestras and choreograph dance routines. You'll explore and expand your dance and musical skills through applied practice — in groups like our student orchestra, gospel choir, dance ensemble, and jazz band.

You'll be able to immerse yourself in Boston's extensive music scene, whether you are interested in hip hop or Handel.

Designed to complement majors from biology to math to arts administration, you'll find a way to express yourself here.
