1. Pre-College

Pre-College Schedule

Pre-College classes meet on Saturdays for 30 weeks between August and May. The comprehensive curriculum of private lessons, musicianship, and small and large ensemble is five hours of class time. Becuase class times range from 8:30 AM - 6 PM and student schedules are interdependentm, we ask students be avilable for most of the day on Saturdays.
