Audition and Interview:
Students will be assigned to either a morning (9:00AM-Noon) or afternoon (1:00-4:00PM) session and must attend with their parent/guardian. Several valuable experiences are planned:
Audition and Recital Preparation Workshop
Recital Performance by one or more of our High School Showcase Recital winners
Audition/Interview (5 minutes) before a panel of two music educators
Scholarships provide private lessons to selected instrumental and vocal students. Selected students receive 25 half-hour private music lessons with some of Milwaukee's finest music teachers. As a culminating experience to the program, there is a year-end recital showcasing each participant in a solo performance in front of a live audience.

Year 1 students who are recommended by their private teachers are eligible to apply for Year 2. And Year 2 students who are recommended by their private teachers are eligible to apply for Year 3.
