Founded in 2003 to provide additional depth to the rich tapestry of the Geneva School experience, The Geneva Conservatory of Music (GCM) is located within and works in accordance with the values, purpose, and mission of The Geneva School of Manhattan. This partnership provides an enriching environment where excellence, friendship, and service to others are reinforced.
The Conservatory offers instruction in piano, violin, cello, music composition, music theory, voice, and chamber music to Geneva School students. Additionally, each student is placed in a music theory class or Suzuki violin group class. Chamber music ensembles are available to brass, string, piano, and woodwind students. Frequent public performances give students the opportunity to develop confidence and stage presence.

Music Theory and Musicianship
Excellence: Our aim is to create well-rounded musicians who are proficient on their instruments and have a solid grasp of music theory and musicianship. Performance opportunities and access to professional performances reinforce a pursuit of excellence.
Community: Friendship, encouragement, and communication are the building blocks of our community. Each student is encouraged to develop his or her own creative ability while gaining an appreciation for the creative abilities of others.
Formation: Students flourish in an atmosphere that celebrates God-given creativity and inspires achievement. We desire for each child to grow not only in their musical abilities but also in the formation of their character and service to others.
The Conservatory’s world-class instructors are accomplished musicians in their fields, having achieved the highest levels of musical training, many of them at The Juilliard School, and having performed in the world’s most renowned concert halls. Our teachers encourage creativity and love for music, emphasize excellence, and foster values such as service, communication, and leadership.
