"I love my graduate program at The Boston Conservatory! The professors are really invested in your professional development and are always available for any questions. Despite being a smaller school, they still produce a number of big budget operas, which give students a chance to gain valuable hands-on experience performing. The only downsides are really related to Boston. Boston's rent has skyrocketed over the past years so the cost of living is difficult for many students to afford. The city's transportation system also has a lot of issues, which can make the commute an arduous one."

"So far, The Boston Conservatory has proven to be a program that cares deeply for the success of its students. This is demonstrated thru its excellent academics/performance opportunities, outreach programs, accessibility to students, and its holistic approach to education."

"The Boston Conservatory is a fantastic school with many opportunities to grow as an artist. The Faculty is extremely knowledgeable in their fields and because the classes are so small you get individualized attention. Perhaps the nicest perk of attending the Boston Conservatory, is the Pro-Arts Consortium, which allows you to get credit for/attend other classes at neighboring schools, like the Berklee College of Music. BoCo is a safe and fun environment for you to be creative in and I highly recommend applying if you want high quality conservatory training. The Percussion department is especially great, with amazing teachers like Nancy Zeltsman and Keith Aleo, you will look at music and performance in a new way then you ever had before."

"Pros: Classmates are very friendly. Some teachers have a true passion in teaching and spend A LOT of extra time working with you to make sure that you understand. Some of them do care about you as a person. Cons: From the administrator's point of view, my experience is that I've been getting the following type of response, "I have no time for you; go away!" For musicianship training, the program is simply not equipped to deal with the demands of a music teacher. E.g. The theory and ear training class is combined into one. There are 18 students in one class. It is basically a self-study course. You may also want to know that there is a lot of reading which has no academic rigor. If you want to get a degree and move on, this is something that can be done fairly quickly. If you want to deepen your undergraduate training, oh well...."

"Pros:The Boston Conservatory Music Education program is comprehensive and cutting edge program--the experience is incredibly hands-on, and the support and guidance from the faculty is great and they are truly aimed at preparing you to be the best music teacher you can be. Cons:This program contains two seven week summer intensive sessions. Classes are everyday and all day, which make working even a part time job during the summer nearly impossible."

"The Boston Conservatory is an excellent program for the aspiring musician. There are many opportunities to perform and study with world-class professional musicians. The administration is rather slow and clunky, but the quality of the music instruction balances that out."

"The Boston Conservatory offers an excellent musical education for the serious student. Like many conservatories, the focus on performance leaves little room for administrative efficiency. However, the faculty are world-class musicians and the location also offers many musical experiences not available elsewhere."
