Carnegie Mellon Summer: Pre-College Music gives high school students the opportunity to improve as a musician. CMU Music Pre-College is offering a unique online program for Summer to give high school musicians the opportunity to continue learning

"Music is the moonlight in the gloomy night of life." -Jean Paul Freidrich Richter
Due to the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, CMU Music Pre-College is offering a unique online program for Summer to give high school musicians the opportunity to continue learning and furthering their skills while staying safe and healthy.
Students can opt to take just the core offerings with the Essentials Program or challenge themselves with the more rigorous Comprehensive Program.
Throughout Pre-College Music, students gain valuable experiences; by being immersed in a conservatory style curriculum and in preparing for college auditions, while experiencing what life is like within an internationally-recognized, research university. The program includes six weeks of lessons and coaching that aid in choosing and preparing appropriate repertoire for undergraduate auditions.
Pre-College Music also very closely mirrors the first six weeks of the undergraduate first-year curriculum - students take the same coursework, with the same schedule, classrooms, faculty and program rigor as first-year undergraduates.
