About Us

At the ߲ݴý Francisco Conservatory of Music, we're advancing a new model of music education that sets students up for a rewarding career in music and a path of lifelong learning. With our partnerships with artist-management companies Opus 3 and Askonas Holt and record label Pentatone, and our faculty, facilities, and position at the heart of the ߲ݴý Francisco music scene, there is no music school with a comparable ability to prepare—and define—the 21st-century musician.

We've been around for a little while.

SFCM is celebrating its 100th anniversary. That means it’s time to take a look back at where it all began.
