Championed by Oberlin Conservatory and Juilliard School-educated Founder CEO Linda Weise, the Colorado Springs Conservatory attracts and retains the nation’s finest arts educators. We have a deep and abiding respect for our faculty mentors and guest artists/lecturers who share with our students a gift for teaching and a deep passion for the arts.

Our teaching method is student-centric, offering a balance of peer-coaching, teacher mentoring, and performance.
