Welcome to The Hartt School, a performing arts conservatory for music, dance, and theatre. At Hartt, we think the best way to learn and perfect your craft is by doing. That’s why we put on more than 400 performances, recitals, lectures, and master classes each year.
Because our faculty are performers, scholars, and creative artists themselves—at theatres and concert halls around the world—they teach from experience, just as you will learn from your experiences at Hartt.
Through diverse coursework and close mentoring relationships with faculty, you can make your passion your profession.
