Mission Statement

The Curtis Institute of Music trains exceptionally gifted young musicians for careers as performing artists on the highest professional level. Curtis provides a personalized education, the cornerstone of which is one-on-one study with some of today's leading musical artists. Admission is highly selective, and enrollment is small--about 160 students per year, based on the musicians needed for a symphony orchestra, opera department, and select programs in piano, organ, harpsichord, composition, and conducting. All Curtis students receive full-tuition scholarships based on merit, ensuring that talent is the sole consideration for admission.
