Master Classes

Master classes are an integral part of the education of every student at the BW Conservatory of Music. Each year the Conservatory hosts dozens of guest artists including professional musicians, conductors, agents, music directors, arts managers, educators and music therapists to interact with our students. Master classes allow BW students to learn from professionals in the field and to build their network of contacts in the career field of their choosing. Classes are open to the public unless otherwise noted.
