At the beginning of the academic year, we informed you of Juilliard’s continued efforts to enhance the security of our building and to ensure the safety of the Juilliard community at large. Beginning March 4, 2017, Juilliard’s Office of Public Safety will be introducing new policies and procedures in support of specific security and safety objectives. Outlined below are two significant policy changes which will affect all students and parents.
- All members of the Juilliard community must swipe-in with their official Juilliard ID cards when entering the Juilliard building, and swipe-out when exiting on Saturdays.
Policy for Leaving the Building
- Unless accompanied by their parent, legal guardian or other recognized responsible party, such as an older sibling, aunt, grandparent or other individual officially recognized by the School as a person responsible for the students’ safety (“Responsible Party”), students in middle or elementary school (grades K-8) are not permitted to exit the Juilliard building on Saturdays until their instruction has concluded for the day.
- Students in high school (grades 9-12) who will reach the age of 14 during the 2016-17 academic year are permitted to exit the Juilliard building during their Saturday school day if and only if their parent or legal guardian has provided written permission to Juilliard. Unless accompanied by their parent, legal guardian or other Responsible Party, all other high school students may only leave the building at the conclusion of their scheduled classes.
Parents or legal guardians of high school students who will reach the age of 14 during the 2016-17 academic year can grant their child permission to exit the Juilliard building unaccompanied during the Saturday school day by completing and signing the Permission Form. Translated versions are available in Chinese (traditional), Chinese (simplified), Japanese, and Korean. Paper copies are available in the Pre-College Office.
Please submit this form to the Pre-College Office no later than February 25. The form may also be scanned and returned to Rob Ross ([email protected]). The policies will go into effect on March 4.
We are pleased to announce Juilliard’s new Preparatory Division Accompanist List (PDAL), which is the resource for students and faculty to use to request piano accompanists for lessons, studio classes, recitals, and competitions taking place at Juilliard.
What is different about this new list?
- All pianists on the PDAL have expressed a particular interest in working with Pre-College students and have confirmed their Saturday availability.
- In accordance with Juilliard’s policies, all pianists on the PDAL have been vetted and approved to work with minors.
- Pre-College students may use ONLY pianists from the Prep Division List. Pianists who are not affiliated with Juilliard may not be used. Juilliard pianists who are not on the PDAL also may not be used.
What is the same?
- The pianists on the PDAL will fill all accompanying needs within the school at no cost to the family. Juilliard pays the accompanist to play for lessons, studio classes, performances, competitions, and other approved school activities.
- You should NOT be asked to compensate Juilliard Prep Division accompanists out-of-pocket for any reason except for additional rehearsals outside of the lesson, which must be arranged and paid for by the family directly.
- The maximum permitted range for payment for rehearsals is $30–$50 per hour. Fees for non-Juilliard-related outside activities are also the family’s financial responsibility.
To access Juilliard’s Preparatory Division Accompanist database, follow these steps:
- Go to https://accompanists.juilliard.eduand log in using your Juilliard username and password.
- Type “prep div” in the search bar to see the Prep Division List. Click on a pianist’s name from the list to see their contact info and reach out to them directly.
- You can also send a request to ALL accompanists by clicking on “Open a New Request” and filling out the form. Include the repertoire and weekly lesson time in your description. If you use this option, note that this request will be seen by all accompanists at the school regardless of whether they are eligible to work with Pre-College students. It is your responsibility to make sure that whoever responds is on the PDAL before you agree to work with them.
- After you contact a pianist, please wait 24 to 48 hours for a response. If you do not hear from anyone, you may contact Molly Skardon, the Faculty Assistant, for help. She can be reached by phone at 212-799-5000, ext. 352, or by email at [email protected].
Finally, please note that accompanists are very busy and their schedules fill up quickly. You must begin your search at least one month in advance of your activity. If your request is unusual (obscure repertoire, etc.), allow even more time. Do not wait until the last minute!
The printer is fixed and we have rescheduled the final day for Parent ID photos: February 4 (9am – 1pm). Please use this link to sign-up for an appointment.
**Feb 4 is also the day of the Parents Association Mid-Winter Party. Come for the ID, and stay to volunteer to help with the party! (Use this link to volunteer!)**
The old paper parent IDs issued by the Pre-College Office will no longer be valid after February 4. After this date, parents/guardians who do not have a Juilliard Photo ID will need to enter the building as a guest and will receive a pass for that day.
A few other reminders:
- Photo appointments will be granted only to those parents who have completed the ID APPLICATION FORM. If you completed a form earlier in the year you do not need to complete a new one.
- Photo IDs should only be requested if you require regular access to the building.

The Juilliard Recording Department employs a strict two week deadline for recording requests. If you would like Juilliard to record your recital you must contact the department directly to make arrangements more than two weeks in advance.
For example, the deadline for a Saturday, January 24 recital is Friday January 9 at 4:59pm (two weeks and a day in advance, as the Recording Department is not open on Saturday).
To arrange for an audio (CD) or video (DVD) recording, contact the Juilliard Recording Department at (212) 799-5000 ext. 284, Monday – Friday ONLY, 9:00am – 5:00pm.
Requests made after the 2 week deadline will not be accommodated; please plan accordingly.
