"Kaufman Center is not just a place to work and get better - it's inspirational. You see kids your age striving to be the best they can be at what you do, too. I think it's really like a home."

Lucy Moses School's Young Artist Program offers highly-motivated music students in grades 6-12 a comprehensive and unique course of study. Each week, Young Artist Program students have a 90-minute private lesson, a two-hour theory and ear training class and an ensemble lesson. In addition, students participate in master classes and regularly scheduled solo and chamber music recital classes held both at the school and at off-site venues. Young Artist Program students are required to fully participate in all master classes, workshops and specialized seminars, and to represent the program through public recitals and performances.

Students in the Young Artist Program meet on a regular basis with a program advisor to discuss their instrumental progress and music-learning accomplishments including a portfolio review of their written work. Admission is highly competitive and requires a separate application, interview and audition. For those students who require tuition assistance, an additional application is required. Each student is evaluated mid-year and again at the end of the school year to assess progress and achievements. Re-admission to the program is conducted at the conclusion of each year following a review of these assessments.
