The Ithaca Summer Music Academy's mission is to provide a creative and supportive environment for young adults to grow as musicians and people. Our high school program is unique in that it offers a residential pre-college experience with a rich offering of music courses, as well as non-music courses.
The classes are taught by Ithaca College faculty and top music educators from across the country. Our intermediate program provides young musicians with the opportunity to work with renowned faculty in a fun and supportive environment.
Our electives have been carefully designed to allow students interested in pursuing careers in music the experiences needed to hone and expand upon their interests, as well as investigate new areas of interest. The program is also designed to give students whom do not wish to pursue a career in music the option to have a quality summer music experience.
Since 1892, the Ithaca College School of Music has worked hard to earn its reputation as one of the finest undergraduate music schools in the country. Each year, our faculty work with students from across the country to transform them into world-class professionals. We are excited to expand upon this success and offer a rich summer program for students of all ages.
