Colburn's JumpStart Young Musicians Program
The Jumpstart Young Musicians Program is a comprehensive, scholarship-supported program that provides pathways for personal and artistic excellence to students who demonstrate a commitment to music education. With a full music curriculum—designed specifically for 70 students grades 6–8—each student experiences an immersive music curriculum. Upon completion of Jumpstart, students who demonstrate an intermediate-to-advanced level of musicianship will be invited to continue their scholarship-supported music education at Colburn through 12th grade so they may develop the artistry, discipline, and confidence needed to catapault them into college.
This fall, the Colburn School will hold three Jumpstart rehearsals a week on the beautiful Grand Arts campus. In addition, the school will provide scholarships for up to 10 students in attendance at Grand Arts to join Jumpstart for intensive, after-school training.
