The Colburn School will launch Jumpstart, a comprehensive, scholarship supported music education program for low income Los Angeles-area students demonstrating high potential and commitment. Jumpstart’s curriculum is designed specifically for sixth and seventh grade students primarily from the 15 Title I schools currently participating in the Colburn School’s existing enrichment programs. Each student in the program will experience 6.5 hours of after school classes per week – private, group, ensemble and music theory instruction – with Jumpstart mentor teachers on Colburn’s campus. Upon completion of Jumpstart, students who demonstrate an intermediate to advanced level of musicianship will be invited to continue their scholarship supported music education through 12th grade.
