Applied Music / Individual Instruction

Among the advantages of participating in Citrus music programs is the opportunity to receive weekly individual lessons through the Applied Music Program. This program is designed to give students the opportunity for private instruction by skilled professional artists in their specific musical discipline. Students enrolled in certain performance or technique classes have the opportunity to audition for acceptance into the Applied Music Program. Students will receive one weekly half-hour lesson throughout the semester. Additionally, program participants are required to attend a concert hour each week where students have the opportunity to showcase their new skills.

Instructor quality is paramount to the success of the program. Current instructors hold degrees from such notable institutions as Boston Conservatory of Music, Indiana University and Julliard School of Music, include winners of the Eisteddfod International Piano Competition in Wales and finalists in the Metropolitan Opera competition. Many instructors maintain their professional careers appearing with artists like Willie Nelson, Natalie Cole, Placido Domingo, Gwen Stefani and Julie Andrews.
