Students who have earned a high school degree from an accredited institution (or have passed the equivalent GED or HiSet exams) have the opportunity to continue their study in the Segue 61 program. Proof of high school graduation or, alternately, passage of GED or HiSet must be submitted before final acceptance into the program. Final official transcripts from the degree granting institution will suffice.

Get started in the application process for classes beginning August 2019, by filling out your information below.

  • GENERAL QUESTIONS

    Optional

  • An "elevator pitch" is a very short description (one that you can say in 15 to 30 seconds) about who you are and/or what you do. Place an emphasis on what makes you distinctive and compelling.
  • In the fields below, provide three links you'd like us to consider. Important note. For video and audio, they should be specific links, like to performances on YouTube or Instagram, not to a general web presence. For spotlight performers and players, at least two of the links should be to videos of live performances that clearly show your role. No link should be more than five minutes long and original works rather than covers are preferred. One of the links can be to a studio performance. For engineers and producers, all of the links should be to studio recordings but may include video content. For music business professionals, provide any appropriate links you'd like us to consider.

  • By submitting this form, I confirm all information in this application (including any supplemental information) is factually true and honestly presented and that you are the person submitting this application. I also give Segue 61 permission to feature my submitted materials for social media purposes.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
