High School Cello

High School Cello

As a high school cello student at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, you will develop your skills as a musician in a conservatory environment surrounded by musicians like you, dedicated to mastering their instrument. 

High School Diploma

As a student in the high school cello program, you will be able to focus on your passion for music while also studying traditional academic courses. You will have weekly private lessons, group master classes, theory and sight reading lessons, and can be assigned to chamber and large ensembles as appropriate. The School of Music requires a weekly Performance Hour, where music students and faculty perform a wide range of musical styles and genres. 

The music intensive curriculum is balanced by the academic classroom – 9th and 10th graders are required to take at least four academic courses, 11th graders at least three academic courses and 12th graders at least two. There are no academic classes held on Wednesdays to allow for group and large ensemble rehearsals, individual practice and lessons. High school musicians graduate with a diploma, with the option to work toward an additional “Concentration in Music” designation.
