High School Application

HIGH SCHOOL APPLICATION

Enrollment is non-competitive and first-come, first-served in order to enable a participant-to-faculty ratio of 4:1. This ensures that every participant has an unparalleled opportunity to improve their technique and musicianship.

Acceptance for participation at KBHC for high school students scheduled to graduate in 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 is by qualifying application.

For first-time high school applicants, the application includes a recording of your performance of a solo and/or etude of your choice that demonstrates your current level of ability, a short essay on the subject “Why I Wish to Participate at KBHC in 2020” and two recommendations. The application forms are editable PDF files. Save these forms to your computer and then open them with Adobe or other PDF software.
