The Longy School of Music of Bard College is a conservatory located near Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Founded in 1915 as the Longy School of Music, it was one of the four independent degree-granting music schools in the Boston region along with the New England Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, and Boston Conservatory. In June 2011, the school announced plans to merge with Bard College and the Bard College Conservatory of Music, and as of April 1, 2012, the institution officially became the Longy School of Music of Bard College. In addition to its undergraduate and graduate programs, Longy has served as a community music school with preparatory programs for children and high-school age musicians, and classes for non-professional adult musicians. However, in March 2013, the school announced that it would discontinue its preparatory and continuing studies programs. As of the 2011–2012 academic year, the conservatory had 225 students in its degree programs from 37 states and 21 countries, with a further 1000 students enrolled in its preparatory and continuing education classes.
