Summer Session at the Community Music School

  • The 10-week summer 2021 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 2021 semester.

    Spring 2021 COVID-19 Pandemic Update

    The IUP Community Music School ensembles and classes will not be meeting this spring due to health concerns and limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are optimistic that, with the distribution of a vaccine, we will be offering all ensembles for the fall 2021 semester.

    However, registration for both online and in-person private lessons is OPEN and will be ongoing and rolling throughout the 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 2021 Registration

    Registration for all IUPCMS private lessons - both online and in-person - officially opens on Monday, May 3.

    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 2021 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.
