Schedule Your Audition
Fill out the audition application, and a YAP representative will be in touch shortly to confirm the audition and provide a time. It is important to remember that our auditions should not be thought of as a daunting or stressful occasion. We like to think of it as a meet-and-greet more than an audition, and look forward to meeting all interested students in a welcoming setting.

All instruments should be prepared to play a scale in as many octaves as they are comfortable, and a prepared solo piece for their instrument. There may be a brief sight reading exercise prepared as well. Any questions regarding the auditions should be directed to Greg Robbins at greg@syap.org

All students in YAP are required to study privately with no exceptions. This requirement ensures that students participating in YAP have a solid technical background, and affirms a commitment to achieving a high standard of musicianship. If you have trouble locating a private teacher we will be glad to assist you in locating one.
Practice is essential to putting on exciting performances. Every member is expected to set aside personal time on a weekly basis to practice his or her orchestral parts. Members are expected to have mastered their music at home, and worked through difficult passages with their private instrumental teachers.
All YAP students are expected to enroll in a music/ensemble class at their school, and remain in good standing. Exceptions to this policy only apply in the case that there is no such program available to enroll in. Any other exceptions are made rarely and on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Executive Director Greg Robbins at greg@syap.org for more information.
Tuition for the 2017-2018 season is $900 with a $100 discount for each sibling. Tuition checks are due by the first rehearsal and should be made out to “Young Artists Philharmonic.” Request for a scholarship will be considered on an individual basis. Questions should be directed to Greg Robbins at greg@syap.org.
