Amherst College attracts many of the finest student instrumentalists who are interested in maintaining a balance between serious academics and high standards of musical performance. The instrumental program is designed to offer conservatory-like experiences--both in terms of ambitious repertoire and professional coaching and master classes--while recognizing that most of its students ultimately will be pursuing careers in law, medicine, business, and other professional fields of study.
