Venessa GermanThe Academy's Artist-in-Residence program brings outstanding visiting artists to the Academy for master classes and presentations. These professional contacts enrich the curriculum as well as provide a realistic perspective on artistic careers.

Attendance at performances and master classes conducted by guest artists help to supplement the students’ learning experiences. Throughout their years at the Academy, students receive information on performing arts careers so that they can begin to make decisions about their own future training and choice of careers.
