This school is so much like a home to me. All the students and faculty are so open and welcoming to all new musicians and everyone works to help each other to reach their maximum capability instead of always competing with one another. The school is very small but there are many other colleges around so it makes up for having a small enrollment and there is always something to do to have fun!

Unique Music Conservatory – Longy is a very small school so lots of personal attention from faculty. Other students are warm and friendly so nice atmosphere. Some unique classes are offered beyond the run-of-the-mill conservatory courses such as mind/body studies (including yoga or alexander technique). Overall I feel it is a unique and great school; especially for grad students, which it mostly caters to.

All building access during non-class hours is controlled through the main office.

People are very friendly, everyone knows everyone, so if someone enters the building that doesn't belong there someone notices.
