Welcome to CIM!
Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM) is one of eight independent music conservatories in the country and is known for superior orchestral, solo, chamber music, composition and opera music programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
At CIM, you’ll learn from our world-class faculty, which includes all the principals of The Cleveland Orchestra. Our areas of study include majors in performance, audio recording, collaborative piano, composition, conducting, eurhythmics, and performance/Suzuki pedagogy.
Through our Joint Music Program with neighboring university Case Western Reserve University, you’ll take your non-music electives and can work on a dual degree in a discipline outside music.
