Program Description:

Program Overview
The US-China Music Institute and the Central Conservatory of Music (CCOM) in Beijing offer a four-week study abroad opportunity for Chinese instrument majors at the Bard Conservatory. This program will take place every year at the end of Bard’s Spring semester, during the last weeks of the semester at CCOM. 

Studying at CCOM is an important part of the Studio Instruction degree requirement. All first-year students will be required to attend CCOM for one month after the end of the Spring semester. Two additional visits are required before the beginning of the 5th year at Bard. This means students can choose to take one year off from this requirement in their 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year.  

During the four-week program, students will take in-person lessons with their master teachers, they will have the opportunity to sit in on classes, and they will be required to participate in the CCOM end-of-year Jury. Final studio instruction grades will be based in part on these activities. 

During each Spring semester students will be asked to fill out an online registration form through the Bard Abroad department so we can inform CCOM who will be coming that year. 

On-campus room and board will be covered by CCOM during the four-week period of study. Students will be responsible to pay for travel from Bard to CCOM. If travel costs present a hardship, it will be possible to apply for a travel grant during the study abroad registration process.
