The One Year Conservatory follows the same course of study as the first nine months of the Two Year Conservatory (Certificate Program). With 22 hours of classes per week, this program emphasizes the fundamental aspects of The Method while ensuring concentrated but broad-based instruction in voice, movement, and theatre history. Upon successful completion of this program, and if the necessary requirements have been fulfilled, students can apply their coursework toward the Two Year Conservatory (Certificate Program). In order to continue on to the Two Year Conservatory, students must receive positive evaluations by their instructors and be in good standing with LSTFI.
