The academy was such a perfect place for me and I had the opportunity to play such
important chamber repertoire that I felt prepared for college.
As an alumnus of AMNW, I have reaped the benefits and advantages from attending such an intensive pre-college program. I was able to take courses to not only help me become a well-rounded musician, but to prepare me for college studies at the Juilliard School and the Cleveland Institute of Music. I have developed strong friendships with the faculty and they have frequently invited me to give master classes, presentations, and performances at the school. While the AMNW caters to a wide variety of students, it is a premier program for young musicians who are passionate about music and want to pursue it as a career. I am extremely grateful for the knowledge acquired there—it was truly priceless. The instructors are first-rate and are able to promote a warm, friendly, and non-competitive environment.
I have followed the Academy since its inception and I’m happy to say that it is among the ﬁnest pre-college music programs in the country. Its faculty is outstanding, the curriculum is excellent, and it attracts the ﬁnest young performers from our region.
