---Weekly classroom sessions over the course of the curriculum period consist mostly of excerpt classes under the guidance of faculty and guest artists. Academy Fellows are required to play at excerpt classes, which explore the appropriate technique and style necessary to achieve the musical goals of key multimedia approaches. These sessions may include but not be limited to special guests, readings, sectionals, and rehearsals. They may also consist of the below described Masterclasses.

--- Academy Fellows should attend and perform in all masterclasses with other renowned orchestral pedagogues over the course of the curriculum period. While Academy Instructors offer certain views of orchestral material, it is also important for Academy Fellows to study other approaches to the same literature. As masterclass pedagogues come from a variety of musical backgrounds, Academy Fellows are exposed to other schools of thought challenging preconceived notions and facilitating musical individuality.
