The CMS Academy is a pre-college program dedicated to helping prospective music school students prepare for auditions and placement exams. In addition to lesson and ensemble requirements, students take courses in music theory, ear training, piano skills, and a weekly seminar covering topics in performance, audition prep, and careers in music.
The program will be comprised of three sessions, all at CMS Centerbrook:
Appropriate for intermediate/advanced high school students in any musical discipline. Course requirements include participation in any ensemble and weekly 60-minute private lessons on the student’s primary instrument. Admission to the program will require an audition with two contrasting pieces or etudes, as well as a scale. Non-CMS students are welcome to apply.
