To provide conservatory level world music training in performance, composition, and ethnomusicology to Jr. and Sr. High School Students.
The American Academy of World Music’s Pre-Collegiate Program is a preparatory program for students interested in pursuing music at a higher level. The courses are provided as they would be at a conservatory and the expectations are the same as if you declared a major in music. Currently, program trajectories include 3 specialization areas for certification: Performance, Composition, and Ethnomusicology. The three concentrations consist of the same classes that can be offered to students wanting to take a course separate from a certificate program and even counted towards a certification.
Applications for the pre-collegiate program require a fully completed application from the AAWM.
