MAP is a tuition-free Saturday program for intermediate 和 advanced music 学生 from New York City’s five boroughs 和 the tristate area who demonstrate a commitment to artistic excellence. The program actively seeks 学生 from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in the classical music field. 通过严格的课程设置, 表现的机会, 还有来自优秀教师的指导, MAP 学生 gain the necessary skills to pursue advanced music studies while developing their talents as artists, 领导人, 以及全球公民. MAP is led by Artistic Director Anthony McGill 和 is generously supported through an endowed gift in memory of Carl K. 海曼.
The mission of the 音乐进修计划 is to provide a bridge to higher levels of artistic 和 personal development for intermediate 和 advanced level music 学生 from backgrounds underrepresented in the classical music field so they may pursue their fullest potential as artists, 领导人, 以及全球公民.
To achieve this mission, the 音乐 Advancement program will:

MAP 学生 are intermediate 和 advanced-level elementary, 中间, 和 high school 学生 seeking to advance their skills in a rigorous conservatory environment. Having begun their studies in school b和s 和 orchestras, 在社区音乐学校, 或者找私人教练, MAP 学生 come together from a variety of backgrounds to work toward the common goal of fulfilling their potential as artists, 领导人, 以及全球公民.
The 教师 of the 音乐进修计划 is comprised of professional artist-educators with a demonstrated commitment to MAP’s mission 和 a depth of experience which uniquely qualifies them to develop young artist-musicians. Visits by various guest artists 和 ensembles further inspire MAP 学生 in their musical endeavors through interactive, free-of-charge performances presented at Juilliard.

MAP alumni have gone on to study in community music schools, 预科项目, 音乐学院, 和大学. Many have chosen music as their profession while others have gone on to be successful in a variety of fields. All alumni have been equipped with quality musical experiences that empower them to become advocates for the arts.
The idea for MAP was developed in 1991 by Joseph W. Polisi, esball世博前院长, in the wake of massive cuts in music education at New York City public schools. The goal was to support underserved communities that were most affected by the cuts.
In 1991, 40个来自曼哈顿的年轻人, 布鲁克林, 皇后区, 和 the Bronx were chosen from a competitive pool to take part in the initial program. Each student selected had at least six months of prior experience with an orchestral instrument, showed musical aptitude 和 a commitment to pursuing musical studies, 并表现出强烈的父母支持.
今天, MAP offers a tuition-free music education for 学生 at intermediate 和 advanced levels who demonstrate a strong commitment to artistic excellence, 和—as 30年前是这样—continues to seek 学生 from backgrounds underrepresented in the classical music field. 通过严格的课程设置, 表现的机会, 还有来自优秀教师的指导, MAP 学生 gain the necessary skills to pursue advanced music studies while developing their talents as artists, 领导人, 以及全球公民.
