Curtis students hone their craft through more than 200 orchestra, opera, and solo and chamber music offerings and programs, bringing arts access and education to the community.
For nearly a century Curtis has provided each member of its small student body an unparalleled education alongside musical peers, distinguished by a “learn by doing” philosophy and personalized attention from a faculty that includes a high proportion of actively performing musicians. To ensure that admission is based solely on artistic promise, Curtis charges no tuition to its students.
All Curtis students receive merit-based, full-tuition scholarships. As a result, talent and artistic promise are the only considerations for admission.
Curtis accepts only a small fraction of the applicants who apply each year, a testament to the talent of our student body.
