Summer Music Seminar

SMS began in 1998, — we began with an 11-week evening program where professionals could get quality formal music training and still maintain their careers. Students came from 7-10 pm Monday through Friday for classes in writing skills, aural skills, and performance. That has grown to a 6-week full time program which includes music writing, aural, keyboard and performance skills. All participants are required to prepare and perform in the culminating concert in the bells choir and concert choir. This program is self-contained and can lead to a Certificate, and is the first six units of any of the Bachelor of Music Degree programs. It may be the most difficult and challenging and rewarding six weeks of your life.

The first session of all degree programs is the Summer Intensive Music Seminar (SMS). It is a six-week rigorous introduction to musical arts. The SMS is designed to provide a firm foundation upon which to build an enduring edifice of musical knowledge and skills.’

Dates of SMS : 7th of May to 15th of June 2018



Students must maintain a ‘C’ or higher in all subjects in order to qualify for entrance into the Bachelor of Music degree programs.
