Founded in 1857 by philanthropist George Peabody, and was the first academy of music to be established in the United States. Under the direction of well-known musicians, composers, conductors, and Peabody alumni, the Institute grew from a local academy to an internationally renowned cultural center throughout the late 19th and the 20th centuries.
Since 1977, the Institute has operated as a division of The Johns Hopkins University, which U.S. News & World Report cites as one of America’s top ten universities. Because of this affiliation, Peabody students are exposed to a liberal arts curriculum that is more expansive than those of other leading conservatories; likewise, Hopkins students have access to a world-class musical education and experience that they normally would not have access to at another university of such stature.
Peabody is one of 156 schools in the US that offer a Doctorate of Musical Arts Degree.
