About This Program

Join us for a brand new Summer Chamber Intensive this August, featuring a uniquely personalized experience for young musicians!

Students will be grouped into chamber ensembles for the week and work closely with members of Mannes Prep’s outstanding and inspiring faculty. The week features a very low student/faculty ratio, a nurturing musical community, exciting performance opportunities, and plenty of fun! All students participate in daily chamber coachings, sight-reading classes, master classes and workshops, and jam sessions. The week culminates in a student performance, open to family, friends, and the public.

The Chamber Intensive welcomes student applicants in grades 2-12, and is open to all instruments. Students should have note-reading skills and be able to play at least a 2-octave scale. See our Application Form for further details.

Tuition & Fees: The tuition for the Intensive is $1575, and applicants pay a non- refundable $75 application fee. Current Mannes Prep students receive a discounted rate of $1375, and the $75 application fee is waived. No financial aid is available for the Summer Intensive.
