Faculty Masterclasses

Faculty masterclasses are the best way to take your material to the next competitive level with college educators from around the country. These intimate masterclasses – offered virtually and in-person – give you the chance to receive valuable insights and develop connections with colleges you may audition for your senior year. 

Past faculty members have included educators from Baldwin-Wallace University, Boston Conservatory, Boston University, Carnegie Mellon University, Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), Ithaca College, University of Michigan, New York University, Pace University. Penn State University, University of Southern California, and many others.
