The first branch to open in 1993, the Ramallah Conservatory has played an important role in the cultural life of the twin cities of Ramallah and Al-Bireh and in Palestine as a whole. It was originally situated on the top floor of the three-story building of the Birzeit University Board of Trustees. In 2014 the Ramallah Branch moved to its purpose-built premises, on a piece of land donated by the Municipality of Ramallah. As well as teaching and rehearsal rooms and a music library, the branch hosts a 200-seat concert hall, a state-of-the-art recording studio and a cafeteria.
The Jerusalem branch opened in 1996 in the premises of the YWCA of Jerusalem. After several years, it relocated to the first floor of the old Regent Hotel building in Azzahra Street. The branch moved to its new permanent home in the renovated historic Shihabi building on the same street in summer 2012. The Jerusalem branch has 470 students enrolled for the academic year 2016/17, plus another 230 students who participate in the branch's outreach and choirs programs.
