School of Music

School of Music

The path to professional musicianship leads through the conservatory. The School of Music offers a transformative music conservatory experience within our university music program that combines intensive individual study under artist mentors with a fantastic variety of performance opportunities — more than 200 recitals, concerts and operas each year, including breathtaking collaborations with other UNCSA performing arts schools. You will attend weekly master classes taught by distinguished guest artists, rehearse and perform in state-of-the-art facilities, and “gig” as a professional musician in Winston-Salem.

In addition to our competitive music school undergraduate and graduate programs, we’re proud to offer one of the nation’s only four-year residential high school programs. The School of Music is also home to the renowned A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute, a professional training ground for exceptional young vocalists.
