Music Development

college prep cello  Music Development Program

To pursue music at the college level as a  cellist the student must possess an in depth knowledge of their instrument, the ability to communicate musically, performing experience and a solid general music theory background. But for any student to take the first step toward studying music at college, entrance proficiency exams must be passed.

Dr. Valdine Mishkin received her Doctorate of Musical Arts from Rice University and will expertly prepare prospective college music students for entrance exams in piano proficiency, theory, harmony, counterpoint, and history. These classes are offered privately or in groups.

We provide students with the tools and opportunities to succeed. Through preparation for full length solo recitals and participation in ensembles, students achieve a secure and excellent foundation for success as an advanced performer.
