EMF Summer Study
STUDY AT EMF
Eastern Music Festival offers optional classroom instruction in several areas related to the performance and business of music that completes our rigorous program. Our classes and seminars give students an opportunity to converse with faculty about issues that every musician encounters throughout a professional career. Open dialogue and honest advice enhance students' experiential learning.
Presented twice-weekly during the festival's concert season, EMF Young Artists prepare full length concert programs. Maestro Schwarz and EMF's artistic leadership select a mix of musically and technically demanding repertoire that challenges each young artist. At EMF, all are inspired and challenged by the repertoire and the environment.
Eastern Music Festival's five-week piano program offers piano students the opportunity to work with this country's finest teachers and performers. Master artists Awadagin Pratt and William Wolfram lead our acclaimed piano faculty.
Open to classical guitarists ages 14 and up, Eastern Music Festival's classical guitar program offers in-depth summer study with top instructors in an outstanding musical environment. Participants will collaborate with other instrumentalists and delve into new territories of chamber music, pedagogy, technique, and performance.
One paid fellowship position is available for a young professional percussionist, who is between the ages of 23 and 33. As an Eastern Music Festival Percussion Fellow, this musician will have the opportunity to perform with the Eastern Festival Orchestra (the professional orchestra in residence) and in other festival ensembles (as programming needs dictate.) Stipend and Room and Board are available.
