Started in 2004 (this is the 15th year anniversary) by MusiShare, MSYAP has been dedicated to the preparation of highly motivated young violinists for entry into the major music conservatories and programs in the US and abroad. 

Because of MSYAP's very distinctive curriculum of Master Classes, Performance Classes, Workshops, Piano Coachings and Showcase Concerts, its students have been accepted into the Juilliard School, the Cleveland Institute of Music, the San Francisco Conservatory, the Indiana School of Music, the Mannes School of Music, the Aspen Music Festival, Meadowmount, the Perlman Camp, etc. Its participants have received degrees from schools such as the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, the Bienen School at Northwestern University, the Blair School of Music, The Eastman School of Music, New England Conservatory, and The USC Thornton School of Music.

The MusiShare Young Artist Program which has been guided by William Fitzpatrick, has had master classes given by Professors Paul Kantor, Cornelia Heard, Phillip Setzer, Stephen Clapp, Kurt Sassmannshaus and others, is open to students from any Orange County California studio. All are encouraged to apply with the full knowledge that MSYAP enhances, but does not replace, their current private instruction.
