The Crane School of Music



The Crane School of Music is a community of musician-educators committed to fostering a vital musical society. Thriving programs in performance, composition, music business, and the academic disciplines of music history and theory enrich our long-standing heritage of leadership in music education. Blending proven traditional approaches and promising educational innovations in a uniquely supportive and cooperative learning community, the Crane School equips students with both the foundations and flexibility needed for the challenges of the 21st Century.

The Crane School of Music has long held that in order to be successful in any career in music, one must strive to be the best musician possible.  Because of this belief, the study of a specific performance medium with a master teacher and participation in a variety of larger and chamber music ensembles under the guidance of expert conductors is the cornerstone of a ‘Crane’ education.
