Students in the Instrumental Music Conservatory study music theory, music history, chamber and solo works, and a variety of musical styles from antiquity to the present.  They study a variety of world music as well, both in a historical sense as well as modern performance practices. Students compose, record, and learn elements of music business and sound engineering as well.  The Conservatory is comprised of a select audition-only group of 10th, 11th and 12th grade students.  Students perform informally, give recitals and participate in large-scale productions, both as solely the Conservatory and in collaboration with other arts disciplines. Amy Villanova is the coordinator of the Instrumental Music Program, which encompasses wind ensemble, orchestra, jazz band, symphonic band, and the conservatory program.
