Frequently Asked Questions
What age students are accepted to Summer Arts Institute?
What will you be teaching my student?
Our two week comprehensive camp focuses on preparing your student for college auditions and all the things they will encounter as they major in voice, piano, musical theatre, organ, band, or theatre. They will take individual lessons with faculty at Shorter as well as group classes in theory, ear training, stage movement, chorus, handbells and other classes.
What does a general camp day look like?
Our day at a glance has breakfast at 8 a.m. Classes and lessons from 9 a.m - 5 p.m. Free time 5 p.m. - 6 p.m. Dinner at 6 p.m. And then evening activities. While we do provide them free time throughout the day, we always know where your student is. We are always aware of their whereabouts.
Both Saturday's there is a recital where we invite parents, family and friends to watch everyone perform. Whether you student performs is up to the discretion of them and their teacher.
When can we visit our student and take them off campus?
Recitals are the perfect time to visit. The middle Saturday, after the recital, you will have the opportunity to take your student off campus with you for lunch for a couple of hours. Other than this time the students stay with counselors and other campers for the entirety of camp.
How many students do you usually accept?
On average we accept 26 students each year.
