About the Conservatory
A Message From the President
Welcome to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music!
We have been educating many of the world’s most gifted music students since the Conservatory’s founding in 1917. Alumni have pursued successful lives in music-and served society as dedicated musical citizens- since the Conservatory’s beginnings.
Today’s Conservatory is the creation of generations of gifted faculty and students who have dedicated their lives to the achievement of artistic excellence. It is also the creation of our surroundings. The distinctive vitality, creativity and beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area are manifested in the Conservatory’s personality-an intimate and supportive environment that enables each student to find a distinctive musical voice.
I offer you a warm invitation to visit and explore the exceptional opportunities that await you here at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
