Our goal is to develop students’ talents to the highest musical and professional levels through private lessons, coaching, instrumental technique, master classes, and a range of performance opportunities.

Students have many opportunities to perform in ensembles large and small from the moment they arrive on campus. The conservatory's large instrumental ensembles include the Oberlin Orchestra, Contemporary Music Ensemble, chamber music ensembles, Performance and Improvisation Ensembles, Baroque Orchestra, and the Oberlin Jazz Ensemble. These and other groups contribute to the busy calendar of nearly 500 concerts presented on campus each year. You'll expand your artistic flexibility through music spanning a world of styles and you’ll perform for enthusiastic audiences, on campus and on tour.Performance Ensembles
