York College's Division of Music will launch a new initiative this fall when the YCPrep Community Music School begins to offer individualized instruction in voice and instruments. The program will be available for students of all ages who want to develop their musical potential to its highest level.
The YCPrep will begin offering in September open-enrollment private music lessons for piano, organ, strings, winds, brass, percussion and voice, with chamber ensemble and theory class opportunities forthcoming. Students of YCPrep, which is conveniently located on the beautiful campus of York College, will enjoy the top-notch practice and performance spaces of the Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall.
Instruction will be provided by exceptional instructors who, as faculty in the College's Division of Music, teach York's undergraduate students. While the faculty bring a wealth of training, knowledge and professional performance experience to every individual lesson, students also benefit from a philosophy which focuses not only on the rigors of the stage but also on imparting the foundational academic training necessary for developing a well-rounded, lasting fluency in music.
Individual sessions will begin in September; applications (see PDF document below) for those sessions must be submitted by August 1.
