About the Institute

Students can enroll as a Piano camper, a Vocal camper, or a Combined Program camper. Institute activities for all students are anchored by daily private lessons, performance class, and choral experience that will prepare students for the 2022 All-State repertoire. Students of all ability levels will enjoy our Monster Sight Reading event that is an iconic highlight of the week. 

Students will also select from hands-on workshops centered around collaborative piano skills, music theory, conducting, and music technology.

Vocal students can choose from private lessons, or, for those students who may not have had formal training, a small group lesson. No choral experience is required or assumed.

Ample practice time has been scheduled for each day of camp in practice rooms that house our beautiful Steinways. Counselors will be available during practice hours to answer questions and help with practice techniques. Recreational activities will take place at a local park.


All students, family, teachers, and friends are invited to attend the performances that bookend the camp week. Faculty will be performing on Monday, June 20, and all students will be performing in the Institute-concluding concert on Friday, June 24 at 2 p.m.

Who May Attend

UCM SPVI is for students who have completed grades 6-12 during the 2021-22 academic year. Pianists should have had at least three years of private piano instruction. Vocal students are not required to have any formal instruction.
