Saturday Music Project, Class of 2023 | Teacher Recommendation Form | DEADLINE: Friday, May 19, 2019
To the Teacher: Your student is applying for a place in Turtle Bay Music School’s Saturday Music Project (SMP).

SMP is a highly-competitive, four-year music education program offered to motivated and dedicated students (entering grades 3, 4, or 5 in the Fall) from across the five boroughs, who otherwise have limited access to music instruction.

Each student accepted into the SMP program is awarded a four year, full-tuition scholarship and receives small group instruction in a primary instrument (cello, clarinet, flute, violin, or viola) as well as a rotating schedule of courses in our “Core Curriculum”, designed to foster musicianship and give students a well-rounded understanding of music-making as an art form.

We are looking for motivated and dedicated students with an interest in music who would benefit from participation in an enrichment program. Turtle Bay Music School and the SMP program would greatly appreciate your commentary on the applicant and family. Please be detailed and specific in answering the questions.

Please complete and submit this form to TBMS by Friday, May 19, 2019.
