Audition Preparation: We also assist our students with their middle school, high school, summer arts camp and college auditions. After preparing their audition requirements and repertoire, we put together a mock audition with a panel of judges so that the student can get a better sense of what to expect for the real audition process. We are there to help, every step of the way.
Our students have been accepted to: The Juilliard MAP program, Manhattan School of Music summer music camp, Interlochen Arts Camp, Mannes College of Music, Boston Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, Music Program at Yale University, Montclair University, Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music Art, New York Youth Symphony, Mark Twain Middle School, Arturo O'Farrill's Afro-Latin Fat Jazz Cats youth ensemble, Murrow High School, Brooklyn Borough-Wide Band and many other fine music institutions.
