Pre-College Schedule

Pre-College Schedule

Pre-College classes meet on Saturdays for 30 weeks between August and May. The comprehensive curriculum of private lessons, musicianship, a large ensemble, and small ensemble/elective is five hours of class time. Because class times range from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM and student schedules are interdependent, we ask students be available for most of the day on Saturdays.
