Summer at Cornish

Summer at Cornish’s Music program affords students ages 12 to adults the opportunity to study with the renowned Cornish music faculty and special guest artists in a series of one or two week intensive workshops designed especially for the aspiring musician. For Summer 2014 we are pleased to welcome new guest artists including Grammy nominated jazz saxophonist Donny McCaslin, jazz drummer Matt Wilson and Sean Nelson, front man of the rock band Harvey Danger. The Music program is also excited to announce new classes, including a new course offering two college credits!

You will hone your skills, learn new techniques from working musicians, and meet other students passionate about music. With a variety of scheduling options, the summer music program at Cornish provides a perfect platform to expand your knowledge, grow as an individual, develop strong audition pieces, and get a real taste of college life. We offer a variety of workshops open to middle school and high school students, as well as a few workshops open to adults. If you have any questions, please contact us.
