Young Music Scholar


Young Music Scholar



Young Music Scholars are students who are interested in enriching their music education through the study of Music Theory and Music History. YMS students attend two classes each Saturday and do not participate in HMP performances.

An audition is not required. The program accepts students ages 8 to 18 based on private teacher recommendation and an interview with the HMP director. Read more about our admissions process.

The YMS Curriculum


YMS students take two weekly classes: Music Theory and Music History.

Students follow the HMP graded theory curriculum. Students progress through Music History survey courses and then enroll each year in one of several Music History electives.
