Be prepared to be present between 10:00-5:00. All activities are on rotating principle, allowing you to have some time between classes for reviewing notes, preparation for what comes next and getting to know your new friends. We have an open door policy as we believe that we learn from one another. We greatly encourage you to use the opportunity and enter as many rehearsals/classes/lessons as you can. Observe other students' work as much as your schedule allows it.
We are so happy and grateful to have our program this summer in the beautiful facilities of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music! The Conservatory’s Civic Center campus at 50 Oak Street, opened in 2006, is just a three-minute walk from Davies Symphony Hall, War Memorial Opera House, San Francisco Ballet, and SFJAZZ, and just one block from a major public transit hub. There are state-of-the art classrooms, practice rooms, teaching studios, and three performance halls.
Students are expected to secure their own housing. Should this prove difficult, please reach out to us for assistance.
