We are a school of music that teaches in English.

The American Conservatory of Paris is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide the English speaking community of Paris with an educational environment that fosters the artistic, intellectual, and personal growth of its students. Our dedicated faculty nurtures a love and understanding of music in their students and encourages individual excellence and teamwork. The American Conservatory of Paris is the best and most convenient way to take music lessons in Paris. All of our faculty members have been selected both for their outstanding training in some of the best schools all over the world as well as their pedagogical approach, dedication to excellence and passion for teaching.

At the American Conservatory of Paris, we believe that music is made to be shared. Therefore, we offer all of our voice/instrumental students performance opportunities in prestigious Parisian concert halls. These recitals offer students the occasion to perform in a formal, yet non-threatening setting for their family, friends, and peers.
