conservatory (noun) a music or drama school.
She trained in a conservatory means that she learnt music and play-acting in a music or a play-acting school or both. Students of conservatories are trained in music or in dance and perhaps also in other fine arts. Conservatories are popular in the US.
- Though a musical voice and the talent for acting or for that matter a talent for any fine arts is inborn, a conservatory can definitely help artistes to sharpen their skills and improve their talent.
- A conservatory can certainly improve the talent of an artist by training them in a fine art of their choice, but it cannot create in a person a talent for a fine art.
