The Academy - a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and The Weill Music Institute, in partnership with the New York City Department of Education - selects the finest post-graduate, conservatory-trained classical instrumentalists from across the United States and brings them to New York City to participate in an exciting, two-year performance and education fellowship.
An important responsibility of the participants in the fellowship (ACJW Fellows) is to work within the New York City public schools. Twenty ACJW Fellows are selectively matched with one elementary, middle or high school for a two-year residency. In collaboration with the schools' music and classroom teachers, fellows develop programming aligned with the New York State Standards for Music Education and the New York City Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Music.
