Curtis Mentor Network
The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally gifted young musicians for careers as performing artists at the highest professional level. To date, over 200 students from 33 states and 21 countries have benefitted from the Curtis Mentor Network. Aspiring young musicians can expect a significant boost in their auditions for schools, competitions, and music festivals. Said one participant: “Having a program like this was the special gem I did not know I needed!”

The Curtis Mentor Network pairs dedicated young musicians (age 14 to 28) with Curtis alumni and summer program faculty to explore Curtis’s “learn by doing” philosophy.
