Learn transcendent technique.

Study viola at SFCM and bring this traditionally mid-range instrument to the vanguard of the performing world.

Five faculty members and about 20 students make up SFCM’s viola department. Studio sizes are kept small, ensuring performance opportunities and tailored instruction for each student in the department. Ensembles available to viola players include baroque and early-music ensembles, contemporary groups, and the Conservatory Orchestra.
