  • NEW! To help students prepare for their YAP Performance Class, preparation videos are due Wednesday, May 1, 2024. If students don’t submit a video, they won’t be assigned a chamber group and will receive an enrichment course instead of a chamber music course.

  • This program includes FIVE daily classes –
    • Masterclass: students should prepare and memorize a solo performance piece.
