A Complete Curriculum of Music Instruction

The Pre-College curriculum includes weekly lessons in the major field, chamber music, and classes in music theory and ear training. Additional electives are offered in areas such as composition, music history, conducting, and other specialized topics.  Students are given ample opportunities in solo, chamber, and orchestral concerts.

Juilliard's proximity to leading Lincoln Center performing arts organizations such as the Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and Jazz at Lincoln Center provides further enrichment to dedicated music students.
