The Sichuan Conservatory of Music (SCCM, Chinese: 四川音乐学院), founded in 1939, is an interdisciplinary music institution in Chengdu, China. SCCM is one of the select conservatories authorized by the State Council to confer graduate degrees to its music and fine arts majors.


SCCM runs its own symphony orchestra, philharmonic orchestra, concert wind orchestra, Chinese traditional orchestra, college choirs, and pre-college ensembles. The conservatory holds hundreds of concerts throughout the year and regularly invites distinguished guest artists and teachers from around the world.

Every two years, the school hosts an intensive international piano festival, where students work with world-renowned artists such as Gary Graffman, John O'Conor, John Perry, and Boris Berman.

Provincial and municipal leaders have attached great importance to the development of SCCM. The government is in the process of constructing new concert halls on the existing conservatory grounds, as well as around the city of Chengdu.


Thousands of students from SCCM have won prizes at home and abroad, including over 430 international prizes.

In 2000, Yundi Li and Sa Chen won first and fourth place respectively in the “14th International Chopin Piano Competition." In 2005, Wei Wen won third place in the “9th Jean Sibelius International Violin Competition." In 2006, Feng Ning won third place in the “51st International Violin Competition 'Nicolo Paganini.'"

The school's national key research projects such as “Research on the musical instruments of minority groups in southwest China” and “Research on the southwest Silk Road” have also yielded great achievements.
