HOLA is thrilled to announce that it is now home to a graduate school, the Longy School of Music of Bard College’s new Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program. The program leverages Bard College’s experience in developing renowned academic and socially based teacher training programs with Longy School of Music’s role as a leader in progressive and rigorous training for performing and teaching musicians. The year-long intensive program is designed for musicians with a desire to respond to today’s educational needs, and who aspire to participate in the growing El Sistema movement in the United States.

The MAT program will provide the candidates with direct access to graduate level faculty, including Los Angeles Philharmonic musicians and leading scholars in music and education. In partnership with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Youth Orchestra Los Angeles at Heart of Los Angeles (YOLA at HOLA) has become recognized as one of the country’s premier El Sistema-inspired teaching sites. As the home to YOLA at HOLA and with HOLA’s strong ties to the community we serve, HOLA is the perfect location to house the program. We are excited to be a part of this highly competitive graduate level program with international recognition that will provide HOLA staff, students and the HOLA community unparalleled access to a multitude of invaluable resources that will make this a very special learning experience for everyone. Welcome Longy School of Music of Bard College. For upcoming deadlines and enrollment information for the Longy School of Music of Bard College at HOLA’s MAT Program, please click here.
