GSA’s instrumental music program is structured to introduce a broad spectrum of musical styles and philosophies and to develop each student’s fundamental musicianship. Music 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 have the opportunity to attend live musical performances and partake in off-campus field trips.
