Longy School of Music to disband nondegree programs

The Longy School of Music of Bard College will eliminate its longstanding Preparatory and Continuing Studies programs by the end of August. The programs, which currently provide private music lessons, classes, and ensemble work to 700 children and 200 adults in the Boston area, are being phased out while Longy focuses on serving its full-time conservatory students, school officials have announced.

“This isn’t a money decision, it’s a strategic one,” school president Karen Zorn said Wednesday, as students and families affected by the decision were being notified.
