MSM Summer (formerly Camp MSM)
Set on a college campus in the heart of New York City, MSM Summer is a residential program (with a day-attendance option) that provides intensive musical instruction in musical theater and instrumental music for students who have completed grades 6-11 (ages 11-17). Students will develop their musical skills and join a community of young musicians through a wide variety of musical and social activities.
MSM Summer English Study
Summer English Study is an innovative eight-week immersion program especially designed for students entering MSM in the following fall semester. Through intensive study and interactions with fluent students, SES participants prepare for music-specific course work as they acclimate more generally to American speech and to life in New York City. Non-native speakers of English may be assigned to SES as part of the admissions process, on the basis of the TOEFL exam.
