Instrumental Music

GSA’s Instrumental Music program is structured to introduce a broad spectrum of musical styles and philosophies, developing students’ fundamental musicianship. Students are provided with a unique range of musical experiences not typically available to high school musicians. This includes participation in faculty-coached chamber ensembles (both classical and jazz styles) and in seminars about auditions, college choices, careers, practicing techniques, résumés and competitions. In addition to weekly studies in music history and music theory, Instrumental Music students receive private lessons from GSA faculty or adjunct professional guest artists. Nationally recognized guest artists present workshops in the areas of performance and musically-related career opportunities. Students also attend live musical performances and partake in off-campus field trips. The Instrumental Music Program typically presents over 50 chamber music performances, 10 solo piano performances, and various interdisciplinary collaborative performances with some of the other GSA disciplines on the Final Day of the program.
