Summer Music Institute




The OSU Summer Music Institute is a six-day music camp designed as instrumental intensives, where students will have the opportunity to have more individualized time with Greenwood School of Music faculty and more specified classes designed for their applied area. This includes:

  • Instrument specific masterclasses

  • Area-specific studio classes and warm-up classes

  • One-on-one private lessons

  • Chamber Music

  • Workshops designed for students from all participants

  • What is the OSU Summer Music Institute?

    A six-day intensive musical experience, the OSU Summer Music Institute offers high school students the opportunity to study their instruments in a comprehensive collegiate setting.  The camp offers three tracks of study: band, orchestra and piano.  Band and orchestra students will have the opportunity to play as members of large ensembles, as well as participate in instrument-specific instruction, led by OSU music faculty members.  Students will be involved in master classes, chamber ensembles, and elective course studies.  Private lessons with OSU faculty are also available.

    Students will study in-depth instrument-specific fundamentals, short and long-term strategies for musical growth, and techniques for high-level performance, including how to progress in the All-State process and other competitions.


    All events take place on the beautiful OSU-Stillwater campus at the Seretean Center for the Performing Arts and the New McKnight Center for Performing Arts. Days will conclude with time to relax and enjoy all that OSU has to offer with trips to the award-winning Colvin Recreation Center and other activities.
