Carnegie Mellon University

School of Music

Where artistry and innovation share center stage

Summer Pre-College

The Program

Carnegie Mellon University School of Music educates outstanding musicians in a stimulating conservatory environment, inspiring imagination and creativity in music and in the construction of musical knowledge in all of its diverse forms.  Designed for rising high school juniors and seniors, our six-week Summer Pre-College residential program will give you the opportunity to see what college is like in this highly regarded atmosphere.  This is not high school and it is not camp - it is as close to college as a high school student can get.  You get to live on campus, take classes with conservatory professors, rehearse and perform with other students from all over the country, and enjoy the freedom of college life in a safe environment.
