CMU's in-person Summer Music Institute Cancelled for 2020 Due to COVID-19 

We all love working with high school students at our Summer Music Institute. We regret that we must cancel the camp for this year due to COVID-19, since one of the top priorities for any summer program is safety of students and staff. Students who have already paid will receive a full refund.


We wish you the best going forward at such an unusual time and look forward to staying in touch! We are eager for 2021.

Best wishes,

2019 Camp Information

Summer Music Institute offers a unique opportunity for students to advance their musical and instrumental skills. Intensive working sessions include sectionals, small ensemble rehearsals, and master classes all with CMU Music Faculty. Private lessons with CMU Faculty Members are available during the camps on a first-come-first-serve basis for an additional fee.

All campers can look forward to an exciting week, full of great music making, outstanding instruction, and new friendships, all held within a supervised environment on our beautiful campus.  Our best CMU music majors serve as counselors (10 campers to 1 counselor) and teaching assistants, offering supervision and mentorship that supports campers participating in the CMU Summer Music Institute. These six-day camps are open to all students entering their freshman year of high school through their freshman year of college. 


If you have any questions about the camp, please contact the School of Music at 989-774-3281.
