Peabody is at the heart of a thriving cultural and educational community—in the Mount Vernon neighborhood, in Baltimore, the nation, and internationally.
Baltimore and the Region
With its grand residences, cafés and restaurants, and majestic fountains and bronze statues, Mount Vernon is reminiscent of a European city.
Community Engagement Programs at Peabody
Peabody plays an important role not only in training the next generation of professional musicians, but also in enriching the lives of Baltimore residents through music.
Johns Hopkins University
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 could not access at another university of such stature.
As a school of The Johns Hopkins University, Peabody students are JHU students, and have access to most of the opportunities and activities available to students on the Homewood Campus. A Peabody degree is simultaneously a Johns Hopkins University degree, and carries with it the same assumption of excellence as any other JHU degree—plus the musical credentials of a Peabody Conservatory degree.
Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music
In 2001, the Peabody Institute and the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory entered into a partnership to aid the growth of the then-brand new conservatory in Singapore. The partnership flourished and in 2007, the agreement was renewed and included a mandate for student exchange between the two conservatories. In 2011, Peabody and YSTCM announced a joint degree program, the first of its kind, in which students study at, and earn degrees from, both Peabody and YSTCM.
