Our program is open for beginner to advanced students aged 12 through adult. Our students come from diverse backgrounds including young-aspiring musicians, adult hobbyists, high school and post-secondary students pursuing music careers, semi-professional and professional musicians. Students are welcome to attend individually, with friends or family, and even as a complete band.
On-Campus Students – Housing and Meals
On-campus students stay in the dormitories and are provided with three meals per day. The cafeteria offers a wide selection of food and vegetarian options are always available. Students are housed according to age and gender. Groups of under age students are supervised by staff members who also stay in the dorm house. Arrangements can be made to be roomed with a specific roommate. Please include your roommate’s name on the application form. A limited number of private rooms are also available for an additional fee.
Students who do not stay on campus overnight during the session pay a lower tuition fee. Meals are not included but a weekly meal plan is available for an additional cost.
Under Age Students
Unless accompanied by an approved member of the staff and a signed parental permission form is on file, students under the age of 18 are not permitted to leave campus. Those under age students who drive to the campus must leave their car keys with the office at the beginning of the session. Off campus students who are under age 18 must be signed in and out by their parents/legal guardians when they arrive and leave the campus.
Parents of under age students must notify the office staff if their child takes prescription medication. All medicines must be stored in our office and will be dispensed as per written instructions outlined on the health form.
