The Advanced Program
The Advanced Program separates teenage students from the younger students with the goal of creating a more appropriate social environment and a more coherent educational experience for this age group. Students spend Friday afternoons and evenings in lessons, theory/composition classes, chamber music ensembles, and orchestra. They also enjoy breaking for dinner together, socializing and impromptu sight-reading of chamber music. Students who reach their thirteenth birthday and the appropriate instrumental level are automatically assigned to the Advanced Program. Qualified students from outside the School may audition to participate in chamber music, orchestra and advanced theory classes in this program.
