1. About Us

Who we are and where we’re headed

At the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, we give students the framework and foundation to succeed throughout their studies and careers, creating a path of lifelong learning. More than any other world-class conservatory, we focus on educating the whole person, with an interconnected curriculum that breaks down barriers between the intellectual, artistic, professional, and individual. Our faculty, facilities, and position at the heart of the San Francisco music scene have helped SFCM seize a leading role in preparing—and defining—the 21st-century musician.
