Summer Camps

TCU Summer Music Institute

Dear Summer Music Friends and Families,

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, TCU has made the decision to cancel all in-person summer 2020 camps and conferences to ensure adherence to state and local guidelines related to public gatherings and protect the health of all participants. The Summer Music Institute will refund all paid registrations for these camps in full.

Update: At this time, our music camp directors and instructors are evaluating their teaching materials to see if an online option is a viable alternative. Please see the virtual camp options below and visit this page for additional updates and information.

The TCU Summer Music Institute provides an intensive, yet fun-filled educational experience through two-, three- and four-day camps and workshops. Middle school, high school, and college-age students participate in a variety of masterclasses, rehearsals, concerts, and recreational activities in a welcoming and supervised environment.

Students have the opportunity to stay on campus, interact with TCU faculty, and experience what it’s like to be a musical Horned Frog.

The SMI registration system has been upgraded. If you have taken classes with us before, you will need to create a new account. Please direct your registration questions to 817.257.7132.
