Greetings! I hope everyone has had a good summer. Believe it or not, it is almost time for fall, and the registration materials for the Preparatory Program are now available online. If you wish to drop off the registration personally, the office is located in room 2247 of the administrative suite in The Shepherd School of Music (2nd floor). The suite is open from 8:30am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. I have a mailbox at the suite, and someone is always available at the front desk if I am unavailable while you come by to drop off registration.
Michael P. Hammond Preparatory Program Students
The Preparatory Program has a limit in studio size and overall enrollment due to space constraints on campus. As of the end of spring 2011 semester, the program reached its full capacity. We have a long waiting list at this time. Therefore, it is imperative for returning students to register on time in order not to lose their place with their teachers. All available openings in the program will be released to those on the waiting list after August 5th. If there are extenuating circumstances that will prevent a returning family from registering timely, please contact me at the Preparatory Program office as soon as possible, before August 5th, so I can find a solution for you without your child losing a place in a studio.
You will find that the music theory program has changed. Music theory will begin the week of August 29th. You can find the theory brochure theory course offerings here.
