Summer Intensive Programs
Spend the summer honing your craft.
A combination of class work, private study and practice time, our intensive programs are designed for the determined student who wants a short but intense summer experience.
These summer music programs offer an overview of styles and concepts relevant to today’s music, and require intermediate level skills and rudimentary reading ability.
Each intensive summer music program includes the following:
- a weekly reading class
- a weekly instrumental technique class
- six style-specific classes in every week including Jazz, Funk, Rock/R&B, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and Caribbean
- a weekly rhythm section with professional musicians.
- a weekly private lesson
- a daily individual practice time
Class sizes are limited to 5 students per two-hour classes. The time for larger or smaller classes is pro-rated according to enrollment. Drummers need only bring sticks, and bass and guitarists only their instruments. It is recommended that all students bring a personal metronome, headphones, and a recording device.
Summer music program classes range from one to four weeks. A deposit is required to hold your space, and the tuition balance is due on the first day of class.
