Dear students,
Thank you for your interest in the Eastman Experience: Summer Classical Studies program.
Due to the extensive updates and renovation to our campus, we will not be able to offer residential high school programs in the summer of 2024 and 2025.

Eastman Community Music School will continue to offer non-residential summer programs for students of all ages.

Please stay in touch with new exciting opportunities to study and learn at the Eastman School of Music in the summer – visit Summer@Eastman.

This internationally acclaimed Classical Studies program is a three-week program for academically inquisitive performers, conductors and composers currently in grades 9–12 (ages 14-18 only–student must turn 14 and not be beyond 18 years of age before the first day of the program) who are seriously considering a career in music. Our highly individualized program emphasizes solo performance (strings, winds, brass, piano, voice, classical guitar, harp, conducting, and composition) and chamber music. This program is for mature students of advanced performance levels who can work well in a focused collegiate-type environment.
