The NHMF Summer Music School includes 5 days of classes, 6 days of concerts, room and board, and the opportunity for students to study (and even perform) alongside faculty artists. Full 7 day boarding tuition also includes admission to all ticketed concert events. Although classes and meals end on Friday, lodging students are encouraged to stay and attend/participate-in the weekend concerts and jam sessions through Sunday, July 9th.
Students under the age 15 and under are welcomed each year and are admitted on a case-by-case basis. Those persons 15 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian unless prior arrangements are made. Parents can contact our director, Christopher Layer, at the office for details before paying your deposit. Some family rooms are available in the Macleod Barn Abbey, our student housing for the week.
Students and chaperones can pay their tuition (or tuition deposit or balance after deposit) by check or over the phone.
