2018 ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED!
About the Young Artists Division RESIDENTIAL
Young Artists Division Residential program runs from JULY 6 – 22, 2018.
The NEW Young Artists Division Residential adds an overnight component (24/7) to the commuter option where students will stay on the UT campus in the dorms.
We’re opening the residential option to high school musicians ages 14 – 18 with intermediate to advanced proficiency. Students will work with amazing workshop faculty and visiting guest artists, perform in masterclasses, attend presentations from artists visiting from all around the world, and as a team, residential students will embark in activities specialized just for them.
During the weekday students will be mixed with the Young Artists Division Commuter musicians. The rest of the day (5:00pm – 8:30am, and weekends) residential students will have scheduled music and non-music activities on and near campus. This new addition will allow students to meet other musicians from all around Texas and the country!
NOTE TO PARENTS BEFORE ENROLLING:
ALL Young Artists Division Residential students are REQUIRED to stay on campus, attend ALL days of the workshop, and attend all group activities from check-in to check-out to participate. NO EXCEPTIONS.
There will be a limited number of spots for the residential division. Once capacity is reached a waiting list will be made.
All instruments are accepted and welcome in the program (string, woodwind, brass, guitar, piano, harp); however this option is reserved for intermediate and advanced students ages 14 – 18 only.

Placement auditions are for chamber ensemble placement only. Once the online registration and tuition is taken care of students have secured their place in the workshop. In order to place students into the right ensembles we need to meet and hear them!
Students living outside of Austin should contact the Director of Education for placement audition instructions. The below instructions are for Austin or close to Austin students.
Two audition dates available:
Saturday, May 19
Saturday, May 26
Armstrong Community Music School, 404 Camp Craft Road
Students will be asked to prepare 2 contrasting solos/etudes of their choice (1 slow and musical / 1 faster and technical). Portions of piece, movement or etude are fine. Both selections should be approximately 1 minute in length. Students may be asked to do sight-reading at their audition.
Set up an audition time:

My child plays two instruments…
Students may audition on 2 instruments (they are placed in 2 chamber ensembles during the workshop) as long as they have been playing for at least one year on both instruments. Students will be required to prepare audition materials on both instruments. When registering put down both instruments and other information that is asked.
Limited financial aid is available to families in need. ACMC’s goal is to offer all students the opportunity to participate in the workshop regardless of financial background. Applications are no longer being accepted.
