Music constantly invites us to discover a world beyond ourselves. Wherever you take your aspirations (as a performer, teacher or in pursuit of further studies), we are here to help you take the next step.

Our international faculty has the expertise to nurture you into a highly creative and musically adaptable professional. Our multiculturalism offers regional and international music students a great environment to study and perform. We have frequent visits from artistes from all over the world, offering masterclasses, workshops, lectures and specialist support.

In addition to weekly public performances on campus at the Lee Foundation Theatre, our student soloists, ensembles and orchestra can be heard regularly in performances throughout Singapore. We have strong links with professional arts organisations in Singapore and renowned music conservatoires overseas, in particular the Royal College of Music in London and the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, holding us to some of the world’s highest musical standards.
