Learn more about the Young Artist Program

The Mason Gross School of the Arts Young Artist Program is a performance-intensive program for dedicated precollege students who desire advanced musical training. Prospective members perform a live audition during which they must demonstrate a performance level equivalent to or exceeding the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Program Grade 5 standards for their particular instrument or voice.

Once accepted to this program, members gain access to a wide range of performance, academic, and career development  opportunities at Mason Gross. These include members-only master classes, special interest forums, and opportunities to rehearse and perform with selected collegiate ensembles (separate audition required; placement is at the discretion of Mason Gross faculty). Additionally, Young Artist Program members may audition for acceptance into studios for private instruction with selected Mason Gross collegiate faculty members.

All Young Artist Program members are required to be enrolled in a music theory class and in weekly private instruction at the Mason Gross Extension Division or at an approved alternate location. Program members must participate in at least one Achievement Program Music Theory Examination and one Achievement Program Instrumental or Vocal Examination annually.

An end-of-year performance jury provides constructive feedback on student progress. Students earn a certificate at the end of the program year. Transcripts documenting Young Artist Program participation are available upon request.

Tuition: $650 per year
