  5. A professor teaches in a classroom.
  6. A trombonist rehearses.
  7. A swimmer performs the butterfly stroke.
  8. A silhouetted person approaches the curved wall outside Hall Auditorium at night.
  9. Several groups of students work in a science lab.
  10. A student is animated while explaining the artwork behind her.
  11. An athlete runs past a building on a cold morning.
  12. The strings of a double bass vibrate as they are played by a jazz musician.
  13. A student explains an idea.
  14. A pianist practices on a Steinway grand piano.
  15. In a museum gallery, a group of students gazes at a painting.
  16. A singer and piano accompanist rehearse in a sunny room.
  17. A student in class holds a pen while speaking.

Conservatory of Music

Music is in Oberlin’s DNA. We are the only major music school in America that focuses almost exclusively on undergraduate education. Our programs, classes, and performance opportunities create an ideal environment for developing the complete musician.
