Study Music at YSM

Here, at the only school of music in the Ivy League, students engage their curiosities and discover their voice.

YSM maintains a highly selective admission process, each year admitting approximately 100 students who come from prestigious American and international conservatories and universities to study with Yale’s distinguished faculty. A full tuition award and living stipend is given to all students who are admitted to the School.

Music is everywhere at Yale. Students perform and attend concerts in the University’s historic concert halls and world-class art galleries and libraries, collaborate meaningfully with peers across disciplines, and engage with New Haven’s creative community. With unsurpassed resources and state-of-the-art facilities, Yale helps students activate their imaginations and design their promising futures. 

What we hope for our students is an experience that allows them to discover their own musical voice.
