LICM’s mission is to prepare performers for the future. The faculty consists of internationally trained performers, composers, scholars and educators, who not only take pride in providing the best instruction available, but also strive to tailor a program which is the most suitable for each individual student.

LICM’s small class sizes provide a high level of attention provided to each individual student.
This environment not only helps to nurture creativity but also helps to mentally support each young musician on all levels.

LICM provides a variety of opportunities to its students to perform off campus since it is through these actual experiences that students achieve the skills necessary for their career. LICM presents regular concerts at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Grand Hall, Russia; Opera House, St. Petersburg, Russia; Maguire Hall, Old Westbury Garden, The Museum of Modern Art, Eisenhower Park, Steinway Hall and also local nursing homes and libraries in the area. These concerts consequently help enrich the cultural community in Nassau County and neighboring areas.

Since 2004, LICM has sponsored an International Music Competition, providing students with the opportunity to meet musicians from all over the world. It is a time where young musicians can communicate their musical ideas and stimulate each other thus enhancing their creativity. The winners of the competition are presented annually at The Theodore Roosevelt Executive Building in Mineola.

The conservatory’s music education has always been backed up by a number of significant events that took place outside the classroom. The first LISMA Summer Music Camp was held in Moscow, Gynesins in 1994. The program consisted of lesson and practice time, as well as offering the participants the opportunity to observe the Tchaikovsky Competition held at the Moscow State Conservatory.
The competition afforded students with an unforgettable chance to see musicians, of the highest level, and from all over the world, perform.

The second camp took place at Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary in 1995, the third at the Prague Czechoslovakia Conservatory in Prague in 1996, the fourth at Gubblo Music Festival in Italy in 1997, and the fifth in Beijing, China in 1998.

LICM has also organized The New York Youth Concert, annuallyfor its students,and has also arranged an annual student concert with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra in 2006 and 2008. This series has helped establish the students’ confidence in their performance skills as well as has helped enhance their understanding of music. Performances have been held at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall and at the C.W. Post Concert Hall.

The Long Island Conservatory of Music creates a music-based program of education and performance that motivates and empowers students in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. Every student will be challenged to take part, learn, grow, and accomplish academic, social, and vocational goals.

Its graduates will be instilled with the integrity, knowledge and intellectual maturity to become leaders.
LICM provides a unique educational focus that emphasizes performance skills, enabling our students to participate in the community arena as mature citizens. LICM is dedicated to the individual.
