Opportunity and Artistry

The study of music is a time-honored tradition of art passed from seasoned artist to student. At Juilliard you will learn to interpret music of any period—to nurture it, refine it, give it life, and make it your own.

Complementing your work with your primary teacher will be collaborative experiences in chamber music and large ensembles, not only with other musicians, but also with the school’s talented dancers and actors. And you will share your art with enthusiastic audiences at Juilliard, at other renowned venues in New York City and around the world.

In the Music Division, we are also taking important steps to broaden our knowledge by creating a faculty-researched list of works by Black composers to embrace and work toward a more representative world of classical music. View Music By Black Composers: An Introductory Resource.
