The undergraduate theory and solfege are one of the best in the country. Using the textbooks of the Paris Conservatory, you will get a rigorous musical education here.
The harp studio here is amazing. Franziska Huhn is an amazing teacher and mentor and is an incredible asset to the Longy School of Music of Bard College where I studied with her in the process of getting my master's degree. During the course of my private studio instruction she has helped me to grow both technically and artistically.
