Sierra Academy of Music (SAM)
July 21 - August 4, 2019
Mammoth Lakes, CA
SAM is an intensive 2-week academy for string players and pianists ages 16-25 who are looking for exceptional performance opportunities and to refine their skills in solo and ensemble playing.
Our faculty is comprised of the internationally-renowned artists of the concurrent Unbound Chamber Music Festival. They are dedicated educators from around the country, who provide a supportive environment in which each student can develop to the best of his/her ability.
SAM students receive individual lessons and ensemble coaching and have ample time to practice and rehearse. Students are expected to come prepared with the pre-assigned chamber music and orchestra parts, as well as with solo repertoire so they can take full advantage of performance opportunities in daily master classes, public concerts and sharing the stage with the festival artists.
SAM housing for students 18+ is at Sierra Park Villas, a short walk to the Academy campus. A limited number of under-18 students can be placed with host families upon request. If we are unable to place under-18 students with a host family, they must be accompanied by an adult.
Need-based scholarships and full Fellowships are available to qualified students -- please inquire on the application.
Housing (14 nights): $725-990, depending on preference. Please see the application for details.
Lunches: $95. Please see the application for details.
