Xinghai Conservatory of Music
The Xinghai Conservatory of Music, also known as the Xinghai Conservatory, is a music conservatory in the Tianhe District of Guangzhou City, Guangzhou Province.
The school offers courses to both Chinese nationals and foreign students at its two campuses which cover a total area of 225,000 square meters.
The conservatory's history can be traced back to the year of 1932, when the composer Ma Sicong first set up the conservatory as the Guangzhou Conservatory of Music. In 1985, the school changed its name to the Xinghai Conservatory of Music in memory of the noted composer Xian Xinghai, who died at the age of 40 on October 30, 1945.
The conservatory gives courses in composition, conducting, musicology, voice and opera, piano, orchestral instruments, traditional Chinese instruments and music theory.
In recent years, the conservatory has developed strong relationships with overseas institutions and individuals. Foreign musicians and scholars are frequently invited to teach or offer lectures at the Conservatory which, in turn, also sends its own faculty members and students to other countries to pursue further studies, lectures or give performances.
