Third Street Music School Settlement Completes First Year of The Achievement Program
New York City’s Third Street Music School Settlement welcomes students of all levels, abilities, and aspirations, from those who study solely for enrichment to those who seek to pursue professional careers. This year marked the first at this Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Program founding school that music students who seek more rigorous study could participate in The Program.
As Director of Programs Shalisa Kline Ugaz says, “Students and parents have a context for understanding their own progress, can engage more deeply in their music studies, and, most importantly, they have clearly defined steps for achieving success and advancement, based on personal goals regardless of age, grade, or years of study.”
Nathaniel LaNasa, one of the first faculty members to adopt the program, says, “I believe that The Achievement Program provides a wonderful opportunity for my students to set goals for their musical studies. I also know that they are inspired to work very hard to present their most secure, expressive, and personal playing for their upcoming auditions.”
“I believe that The Achievement Program provides a wonderful opportunity for my students to set goals for their musical studies."
Lee Koonce, the school’s executive director, sums up the experience: “It is a privilege and an honor for Third Street to be a founding member and assessment center for The Achievement Program and a gift for our students to be a part of this historic effort.”
