Frequently Asked Questions

Are Classes Open To Viewing?

Classes are closed sessions. This provides students with the necessary focus and lack of distraction required to support an optimal learning environment. However, the community is invited to attend our open houses offered twice-a-year as an opportunity to get an up-close view of what we do.

YLJC ensembles perform regularly at various locations in San Diego. See our calender for all dates.

Where Do Ensembles Play?

YLJC provides public performance opportunities for each ensemble, with some performing at San Diego’s most well-known and respected venues. The program prepares students to speak to an audience, develop a set list, and work collaboratively with the members of their ensemble. 

Each Wednesday one YLJC ensemble plays at The Young Lions Series at Panama 66 in Balboa Park (all ensembles are given the opportunity to perform here). Select ensembles will open for San Diego Symphony's Jazz @ The Jacobs series at Copley Symphony Hall, and a few concerts at Bayside Summer Nights at Embarcadero Marina Park, as well as other special events. In addition, there are two recitals per year in which all ensembles play.  

See our calender for all dates.

Do You Offer Private Instruction?
