Pre-Professional Program

​The Co-op Pre-Professional Program develops artistic professionals and provides high-quality early work experiences for youth in Canada.

What is this?

The Pre-Professional Program is a full-time, paid opportunity for young musicians to refine their skills in preparation for the Emerging Artist program. Pre-Professional artists will participate in trainings and workshops, collaborate with other musicians in the program, and—under the guidance of a Program Coordinator—develop strategies to improve their performance skills in order to meet the requirements for the EA Program.
