The Certificate Program challenges each student to read, write, and hear the language of music with a high
level of literacy. This tuition-free program for high school students includes intensive study in theory and
musicianship, keyboard, and chamber music in addition to regular lessons and orchestra membership. Students
successfully completing the two-year course receive certificates of their accomplishment at graduation
recognized by leading music schools. Participation in the program is encouraged for students planning a musical
career as well as those who want a deeper understanding of music to enhance their adult life. Classes are held
on Thursday late afternoons - evenings and begin in September.
