College Preparation

Students who would like to purse music as a career or a music scholarship to attend college can take advantage of the Academy’s College Prep program. This offering helps students prepare for auditions. Most colleges require that an audition tape or CD is submitted for review and/or the student perform select musical pieces and sight read before a panel of judges. The Academy has two offerings to help students prepare for these requirements.

Private Instruction for Auditions

In these sessions students work on specific audition material and develop their site reading skills. If the college requires a panel audition, a mock panel is formed so the student can get used to performing in front of a formal panel and receive feedback on their technique and performance in order to make presentation adjustments before the actual audition.

Production of Audition Tape or CD

Students who have to submit an audition tape or CD need the best quality production in order to ensure that poor quality audio or sub-par support musicians do not overshadow their talent. Working with professional musicians and studio technicians the student receives a quality work product. This gives them the best of chances to be one of the selected few in the competitive environment faced to be accepted in a collegiate music program.
