School of Groove uses a flexible curriculum, available for all instruments of study. This curriculum is designed with a focus on preparation for College auditions, and thus, each student that successfully completes each level, will be prepared to take college auditions.
The School of Groove – COLLEGE-TRACK, is an optional program designed to provide music students in grade levels 1-12 with a skill assessment program. The final level of this program is equivalent to the audition requirements of a college level music institute, such as Berklee College of Music or New England Conservatory. Our goal through this program is to challenge students in their daily practice goals, and to train up students so that they will be well prepared for any college entrance audition. To advance through each level, students will be required to perform the listed requirements for a quorum of two School of Groove faculty members.
Requirements for each level:
Students may audition for any level, at any time. However, the following requirements must be met to successfully pass any level:
a. A student must perform at one School of Groove student recital during the previous or current semester.
b. A student must enroll in one School of Groove elective course, and receive a passing grade or higher. This course can be taken during the previous or current semester.
