P.O.P. Preparatory Orchestra Program is open to all beginning violin, cello, viola and bass students, ages 5 to 12.
Beginners are the
future of the NYO
The “Preparatory Orchestra Program” (P.O.P.) is designed to provide each student member with the necessary skills and ideals that will fully prepare them to enter the NYO orchestra program. NYO is extremely serious about providing the very highest quality ensemble training for this level. Because we are committed to the success of this program, we have entrusted our high level artistic staff and conductors to instruct these ensembles.
What is the P.O.P. about?
This program is designed for the complete beginning student and intermediate beginning student. Children and teens between the ages of 5-12 with either no previous playing experience or up to one year of playing experience are invited to participate in one of our instrumental ensembles. These students will benefit by having the opportunity to learn in a friendly group environment of similar aged individuals. In these ensembles, members will be taught the most basic performance skills and musical rudiments like, note reading, pitch training, rhythm training and ensemble training.
Duration of this program
The P.O.P. training program may take one to two years to finish. After completing this program, members will graduate and confidently move up to the NYO Orchestra I, which is our entry level orchestra ensemble.
Private lessons are essential
Each member will be assigned to take individual instruction from one of our staff members throughout the completion of this program. The one on one instruction will provide additional support, assuring the success of each student as our teachers will develop and refine the necessary instrumental skills.
