Summer Session at the Community Music School

The 10-week summer 2022 semester will be held for both virtual and in-person private lessons. Ensembles have not been offered in the summer, and we don't anticipate that changing for the summer 2022 semester.

Summer 2022 COVID-19 Update

While difficult to predict what the status of the COVID-19 pandemic will be 10 months from now, we anticipate continuing to offer in-person and virtual private lessons. Ensembles typically do not meet during the summer.

Registration for both online and in-person private lessons will open May 9 and will be ongoing and rolling throughout the summer semester. For more information on lessons, please see the Private Lessons page.

For additional information from the IUP Community Music School, please see the IUPCMS home page, and for more information from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, please see the comprehensive Coronavirus Information page.

Summer 2022 Registration

Registration for all IUPCMS private lessons—both online and in-person—officially opens on Monday, May 9, 2022.

Note 1: As it is throughout the entire year, private lesson registration is flexible and ongoing throughout the semester; however, most students sign up for a full semester of lessons, or nearly the full semester, depending on their schedules. The summer 2022 semester is 10 weeks; a minimum of five lessons is required.

Note 2: The crimson "Register Now" bar found throughout the IUPCMS website is only for students NEW to the IUP Community Music School. Anyone who has been a student in the past should simply email to register for the upcoming semester or to make inquiries.

If you are registering for the first time and the "Register Now" button does not work for you, please immediately email and let us know!

Registration Fee

The IUP Community Music School assesses a reduced registration fee of $25 per individual student per semester during the fall and spring semesters, and a reduced $20 registration fee per individual student during the summer.

This fee supports a very small portion of the total administrative costs associated with running the school and helps keep participation costs as low as possible.
