Music Advancement Program
The Music Advancement Program is a Saturday instrument instruction program for intermediate students from New York City’s five boroughs and the tristate area who exhibit great musical potential. The program actively seeks students from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in the classical music field and is committed to enrolling the most talented and deserving students regardless of their financial background. Through a comprehensive curriculum, performance opportunities, and summer study partnerships, MAP students gain the necessary skills to pursue advanced music studies while developing their talents as artists, leaders, and global citizens. The Music Advancement Program is administered by Juilliard's Office of Community Engagement.
The Music Advancement Program is generously supported through an endowed gift in memory of Carl K. Heyman.
