The student body at the Conservatory is of limited size, in order that maximum personal attention may be given to each candidate. It is possible to develop an authentic musical talent only if proper attention is given to each detail of interpretation, technic, personal promotion, and other essential elements. The Conservatory seeks to forge a close collegial bond with each student in order that his or her maximum potential may be realized. This cannot be done in large numbers. The Conservatory therefore seeks to work only with those for whom real success seems possible.
