2019 Summer Session
June 22 to August 10
Celebrating 75 Years

Since 1944, Ivan Galamian’s Meadowmount School of Music has been a summer school for young musicians of violin, viola and cello studies training for professional careers in music.

Through the guidance of the dedicated teaching and coaching staff, the availability of professional collaborative pianists, renowned guest artists, and the time dedicated to practice, students can accomplish at Meadowmount in a summer what would ordinarily take a year to accomplish at home.

Students Walking

Meadowmount accepts approximately 200 students, ages 13 to 30, through a video audition process focused on solo and chamber music material. Students practice 4 to 5 hours per day, receive weekly private lessons, chamber music coachings and are offered daily master classes by faculty and guest artists. There are three on-campus concerts per week and various off-campus concerts through out the summer.

A high degree of social maturity and professionalism is expected of each student. A strong willingness to work together, respect for the feelings of others and the motivation to practice 5 hours per day are necessary to achieve maximum results. For students under age 18, practice monitors are available to help increase productivity and to help with time management.
