Practice Your Passion!
The Mason Gross Pre-College Program seeks to nurture the innate artistic abilities of children from infancy through high school. Classroom, ensemble, and private instruction taught by our distinguished faculty provide a rich environment for development. Classes and lessons are offered on weekday afternoons, evenings, and throughout the day on Saturdays. On- and off-campus student performance opportunities are available throughout the year.
The Extension Division’s Pre-College Program supports outstanding student growth and achievement by participation in The Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Program (TAP). The Achievement Program provides a recognized national standard of musical success through an effectively sequenced course of study from beginner to advanced levels in all instruments and voice. The Achievement Program inspires excellence through individual student assessments and allows students to celebrate accomplishment and track their progress with others across the country. Learn more about this program online at theachievementprogram.org.
Participation in the Extension Division’s Pre-College Program brings students and their families into the vibrant cultural community at the Mason Gross School of the Arts. Students gain unique access at discounted rates to world class programming in classical music, jazz, opera, drama, dance and the visual arts at the school.
