Our conservatory program is for GMA's most dedicated students. In order to apply for the conservatory program, students must be at least 7 years old and have studied privately or in group lessons for at minimum one year. In the conservatory program, children study for the "Achievement in Music" or "AIM" theory and performance exams held annually at Northwestern University.
The conservatory program is currently only available for piano, strings, and voice students. New applications for the conservatory program are accepted in July and the program begins in the Fall term of each calendar year.
*Students who do not maintain their practice or regularly miss performance classes will be dropped from the program.
