Our Program

In 1944, Ivan Galamian founded the Meadowmount School of Music for young musicians of violin, viola and cello training for professional careers in music. Meadowmount remains true to Mr. Galamian’s vision of a school with “a special spirit that is conducive to total concentration on excellence in musical performance,” a place to study with internationally-renowned faculty and enjoy the camaraderie of other young musicians from around the world.

Meadowmount accepts approximately 200 students, ages 13 to 30+, through a video audition process focused on solo and chamber music material. Students follow a rigorous practice regimen, receive weekly private lessons and chamber music coachings and are offered daily master classes by faculty and guest artists. Students perform frequently in the three on-campus concerts per week and various off-campus concerts throughout the session.

A high degree of social maturity and professionalism is expected of each student. A strong willingness to work together, respect for the feelings of others, and the commitment to practice are necessary to achieve maximum results. For students under age 18, practice monitors are available to help increase productivity and to help with time management.

Campus Life

Students practice in their private rooms with a ten-minute break each hour. For students under 18, assistance is available from practice monitors.

Private lessons are scheduled in the morning and afternoon.

Concerts, chamber music coaching, chamber music rehearsals, studio classes, rehearsals with accompanists, master classes and special events are scheduled in the afternoons and evenings. Off-campus recreational activities are offered afternoons and weekends. Thus, each student’s individual weekly schedule is unique.

Master classes are open to all students regardless of instrument studied.

Practice Saturday afternoon and Sunday is optional.
