The Birmingham-Southern College Conservatory has a long tradition of excellence and makes available to students of all ages the same opportunities in the arts that are available to college students at Birmingham-Southern. The quality of the faculty is one of the reasons the Conservatory has earned such an outstanding reputation through the years. Our faculty members are degreed professionals and their dedication makes the Conservatory a special place for students.

Music instruction on BSC’s main campus enables students to take full part in its longstanding tradition of top-notched music education. Being on campus will also expose middle- and high-school music students to the life of the college, allowing them to take part in the numerous opportunities to engage with the fine and performing arts on campus, including attending recitals and interacting with BSC students, professors, and visiting artists. The Conservatory also offers satellite locations throughout the Birmingham area and is able to provide quality instruction to students in their own communities.

Please join us and become part of the proud tradition at the Birmingham-Southern College Conservatory of Fine and Performing Arts!
