Comprehensive Music Program for Young People (CMPYP)
CMPYP provides high quality music training every Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM to students between the ages of 7 and 19. Each class is 45-60 minutes in length and students participate in at least three classes per semester, based on their interests and abilities, as part of the CMPYP curriculum. The program operates on a 30-week academic year.
The goal of the program is to provide students with the specific tools – musically and socially—that they need to succeed personally and in their respective public and private schools.
Individual study is provided in piano, drums and percussion, guitar, violin, voice, saxophone, and clarinet. Group class instruction is part of the sequential curriculum in ear training, theory, braille music, music appreciation, and dance. Students have the opportunity to participate in a number of ensembles including a chorus, instrumental ensemble, laptop orchestra, drum circle, and the top-notch GuavaTones, a mixed teen vocal ensemble. Students have access to the Music School’s Accessible Music Technology Program, an integral part of music theory, MIDI composing, sequencing and arranging.
Classes may include Braille music, music theory, music technology, composition and arranging, drum circle, laptop orchestra, and tap dance, in collaboration with 92NY Harkness Dance Center.
