Programs for all ages and levels are designed to nurture each student’s innate musicality,
leading to the satisfaction and personal rewards that come from accomplishment and
sharing. Emphasis is placed on private instruction in addition to classroom and ensemble
experience. It is often in making music with others that our deepest sense of fulfillment
is found. The faculty and staff of the Preparatory Department are committed to providing
each student with the course of study best suited to his or her musical needs. We
sincerely hope that you will find a musical home and family within our walls.
It is the goal of the Preparatory Department to provide each student with a stimulating
environment best suited to his or her age and education level. The PBA community provides
a wealth of musical and educational resources to augment music lessons. Inspiration
can be drawn from orchestral, and chamber music concerts, opera and faculty recitals
of the highest caliber. PBA's Warren Library
has an outstanding collection of books, CDs and videos for children in its collection.
It also offers the latest in technology and an extensive collection of videos, CD’s,
and reference materials for young people and adults.
Whether you are considering making music part of your child’s curriculum or have an
advancing young student who shows promise I invite and encourage you to explore our
website and feel free to contact me for an appointment or further information.
