IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are applying for The Artistic Flutist: Bonita Boyd International Flute Masterclass, Eastman Cello Institute, Eastman French Horn Institute, Eastman Summer Trombone Institute, The Pianist’s Guide to Dance Accompaniment (credit course only), or the Summer Wind Conducting Institute, an audition is required before you can register. Please DO NOT register until you have been accepted to the program.


  • 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.
  • Over the summer, the University moved to a new system in which three COVID-19 tiers—low, medium, and high—both determine and communicate the face mask requirements on University campuses. Students, faculty, staff, visitors—anyone who plans to be inside a University building or facility—can check the status and know whether face masks are required indoors (high), strongly encouraged (medium), or optional (low). The system directly correlates with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID 19 Community Levels for Monroe County and provides a consistent framework upon which to base University masking guidance.
  • The current University COVID-19 tier can be found on the face mask guidelines page and the COVID-19 Resource Center.

Complete and submit our online registration form (linked below). You can save the form without submitting and return at a later time if needed.
