Whether enrolled in the Conservatory, one of the Academies, the Community School, or the Trudl Zipper Dance Institute, our families play a vital role in the success of their students and in the Colburn community as whole. Get to know more about the resources and opportunities available to you as a member of the Colburn family by joining us for Office Hours or reaching out to our Manager of Alumni and Parent Relations, Michele Yamamoto. There are many ways for you to get involved, and we hope you stay in touch and let us know how we can better serve your family.
