Certificate Program

Overview

PLEASE NOTE: As of 2022, we are retiring the certificate program.
Students who enrolled in 2019 or earlier will be allowed to finish if they wish. Please note requirements below.

Purpose

Early application for students already enrolled in the program begins December 15, 2021.

Benefits

For a well-rounded Music Camp experience, you may still do a self-service certificate! See the requirements below to help you choose your classes.

Because the certificate program is being retired, no new students will be accepted into the program. Students who are already enrolled in the program will be allowed to continue for a limited time in order to finish their certificate.

The annual fee until the certificate is completed is $35USD/45CAD.  When you sign up for classes, you will be able to pay the annual fee, and to indicate whether you will choose classes yourself or you want to ask for assistance.
