High School Viola

High School Viola

As a student in the high school viola program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, you will be immersed in an environment of hard-working, dedicated musicians who – like you – are committed to the joy of mastering their craft.

High School Diploma

You will be able to focus on your passion for music while also studying traditional academic courses with 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 ensembles rehearsals, individual practice and lessons. High school musicians graduate with a diploma, with the option to work toward an additional “Concentration in Music” designation.
