Covid-19 update

Our summer workshops have been cancelled for Summer 2020. The status of the campus in August remains unclear, and we cannot plan with confidence, assuring a quality experience for all. Professor Galvan's workshop is being adapted into an online course. If you are interested in taking that course, please consult the course description in the Electives section of the Summer Session webpage. You will then need to contact the Office of Extended Studies to enroll as an extra-mural student. The instrument repair workshop will be prioritized for next summer when, hopefully, we will be able to congregate on campus again. I am sorry we won't have the chance to meet this summer in Ithaca, but I look forward to Summer 2021!

Summer graduate workshops offer an outstanding professional development experience for educators in the field. These one-week workshops provide a variety of educational experiences each year and may be taken by degree students or non-degree students, for credit or not for credit.

The workshops usually occur in the week preceding the five-week graduate music summer session, but will run in the week following the session in 2020. Workshops offering students in the summer music education degree program an opportunity to earn credits outside of the regular summer session. Up to five credits from workshops may be applied toward a master's degree.
