Is this a performance program? Why is it part of the Steinhardt School?

New York University's "conservatory of music" has historically been housed in the Steinhardt School, beginning in 1925 and has become a part of both the structure and tradition of NYU. Instrumental WOODWIND AND BRASS Performance - like its sister programs in piano, strings, vocal, percussion, and jazz studies - is indeed a performance program. It offers conservatory-like training within the context of a demanding liberal arts curriculum. Students graduating from the program receive no teacher training and are not certified to teach in public schools.
