Oberlin Music Conservatory is a top classical flute school

The Oberlin Music Conservatory is the oldest continually operating music conservatory in the U.S. and maintains an impressive student/faculty ration of 6:1 allowing for high-quality, personalized instruction.

The conservatory has an enrollment of approximately 600 students - primarily undergraduate - from 45 U.S. states and 22 countries. Nearly 175 of those students are enrolled in the Double Degree Program. There are nearly 500 concerts on campus each year, including performances by the more than 25 student ensembles, and performances and masterclasses by guest artists. Faculty members perform on campus and throughout the world. Oberlin's Artist Recital Series includes campus-based performances by premier, national orchestras and internationally acclaimed soloists. 

Flutists at Oberlin study with Alexa Still, an accomplished artist who gained international acclaim for her many recordings on the Koch International Classics label.  Still, a former president of the National Flute Association (US), also maintains a busy concert schedule and contributes regularly to flute journals worldwide.
