Conservatory Quotations

When I was a young musician, the only option available to pursue secondary education in music was to attend a classical conservatory.
Billy Joel

At one point, I was hell-bent on being a Disney animator, and sort of got over that in college and wanted to do my own stuff. You know, towards the end of college I had actually planned to go to the Boston Conservatory of Music for musical theater.
Seth MacFarlane

Andre Previn

Mstislav Rostropovich

I started playing the piano when I was about two and got a scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore when I was five. But I left when I was 11.
