Apply to The Crowden School

Admission to The Crowden School is based on musicianship, grades, teacher recommendations, and the child’s entrance examination results. As a performance school, special attention is paid to each student’s enthusiasm for the instrument played; to the necessary commitment required of a rigorous academic curriculum and full music program; and to parents' willingness to support and contribute to a community of young musicians.
