Music School The Washington Conservatory of Music was established as a non-profit music school in 1984 by four Co-Founders: pianist Liova Kaplan, pianist Dionne Laufman, cellist Miron Yampolsky and founding-Director Diana Young. The school was named a conservatory to indicate the highest quality of musical instruction for young beginner students through adults. The Founders looked to the Moscow Conservatory and the Yehudi Menuhin School in England as models and planned to institute two tracks of study for both select gifted students and for students admitted without audition. The original governance of the organization included a faculty committee, administrator, and board of directors. In 1991 the Washington Conservatory was accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music Commission on non-degree granting institutions, a distinction it proudly maintains today.
Private Instruction offered in the following: Brass Instruments, Keyboard Instruments, Percussion Instruments, Strings, bowed, Strings, plucked, Woodwinds, Voice
