Juilliard School

The Juilliard School, located at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, United States, is a performing arts conservatory. It is informally identified as simply “Juilliard,” and trains about 800 undergraduate and graduate students in dance, drama, and music. Juilliard is one of the most prestigious performing arts conservatories in the world.
In 2007, the school received 2,138 applications for admission, of which 162 were admitted for a 7.58% acceptance rate.  In the fall semester of 2009, the school had an 8.0% acceptance rate.

The Pre-College Division teaches students enrolled in elementary, junior high, and high school. The Pre-College Division is held on every Saturday from September to May in The Juilliard Building at Lincoln Center.

All students study solfege and music theory in addition to their primary instrument. Vocal majors also must study diction and performance. Similarly, pianists must study piano performance. String, brass and woodwind players as well as percussionists also partake in orchestra. The Pre-College has two orchestras, the Pre-College Symphony (PCS) and the Pre-College Orchestra (PCO). Placement is by age. Students may elect to study conducting, chorus, and chamber music.
The Pre-College Division began as the “Preparatory Department” within the Institute for Musical Art. It is now called the Pre-College Division, with Olegna Fuschi as its first Director. The Fuschi/Mennin partnership allowed the Pre-College Division to thrive, affording its graduates training at the highest artistic level (with many of the same teachers as the college division), as well as their own commencement ceremony and diplomas. Following Fuschi, directors of Juilliard’s Pre-College Division included Linda Granito and composer Dr. Andrew Thomas. The current Artistic Director of Juilliard’s Pre-College Division is pianist Yoheved Kaplinsky.
