Welcome to Summer@Eastman!

June 27 - August 5, 2022

The Eastman School of Music Summer at Eastman program offers students and the community an individualized and world-class music education experience. Choose between residential music programs and camps for middle and high school students, weeklong institutes devoted to various instruments or specialties, half-day music workshops for youths, online workshops, and collegiate classes in Music Education, Music History, and Music Theory.

Summer@Eastman offers in-person and online options for 2022

At this time we are planning to return to in-person instruction for Summer 2022 if conditions permit. Click here for COVID information, policies, and updates.

Please note:

  • The Eastman School of Music currently requires proof of COVID vaccination (2nd dose of Pfizer, Moderna or 1st dose of J&J/Janssen vaccines) for all registered students. As of April 6, 2022, booster shots are no longer required.
  • Masking is currently required in all indoor spaces on the Eastman campus; everyone must wear a non-cloth mask (N95, KN94, surgical mask, etc.) at all times. The one exception is for professionally-made masks for musicians, which may continue to be used when performing.
  • COVID-19 safety policies and protocols are subject to change; we will update this page as new information is received.

We are also offering a variety of online programs, including online auditor options for some of our in-person institutes, for those who prefer a virtual experience.

Our faculty are already hard at work designing engaging and inspiring programs for Summer 2022. We hope you’ll join us!

Students love Summer@Eastman!
