From the Administration:
Dear Prospective San Diego Summer Music Institute Participant,
On behalf of the board of directors of the San Diego Winds and the music faculty of San Diego State University welcome and we hope you are excited about the opportunities that await you this summer. The San Diego Summer Music Institute was formed in recognition of the number of dedicated music students and flourishing school music programs in San Diego County and the lack of summer camps available in town. We wanted to create a unique and powerful musical experience that brings together motivated students and the county’s elite teachers and musicians for an explosive week of music making. We know that by the time you complete your week of intensive instruction you will be inspired and dedicated to furthering your musical achievements in the year to come.
We are excited that our students for 2013 can continue to attend as residents or as commuters. Residents receive musical instruction, are provided up to three meals per day and will enjoy the experience of residing for the duration of the camp in an SDSU dormitory. Commuters receive the musical instruction and meals but will not be living on campus.
The following application includes several forms including the application form, scholarship form (optional) and payment form. Once your application is received we will send you a participant packet which will include information about your week at the Summer Music Institute including a detailed itinerary, campus map and information, as well as general information for the week. Should you have any questions at any time please do no hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org
