High School/Middle School Workshop
This intensive chamber music program is for advanced young string and piano players ages 11-18. There are some limited opportunities for wind players. Students enjoy seven days of teaching by our internationally renowned faculty. Each day includes coachings in small chamber groups and orchestra. Several public performances are presented. Located on the beautiful campus of UNC-Chapel Hill, this summer program offers exceptional students the opportunity to develop their talents while working closely with other committed young musicians.  

 

College/Conservatory Workshop
In the summer of 2014, we debuted the MYCO College Level Workshop to provide college aged students (all attending music conservatories or majors in music at a university) the opportunity to receive private instruction from high caliber professional musicians, both international and local, and participate in chamber music groups with their peers from across the country.  The college students are integrated into MYCO’s annual summer workshop for local high school students.  In return for reduced tuition, they provide mentorship and guidance, as well as music instruction to the high school students.  This benefits both the college aged and high school students by giving each musician the opportunity to develop their talents while working closely with other committed young musicians.  Several public performances are presented to the community at the end of the workshop.

MYCO’s College Fellowship program offers a full tuition waiver to 4-6 college students. Fellowship students are chosen on the basis of artistic excellence as well as leadership qualities. Fellowship students will receive an opportunity to perform side-by-side with MYCO's artist faculty. They'll also mentor a group of younger chamber music players at the Summer Workshop. If you'd like to be considered, please submit a short essay paragraph describing the leadership and mentorship qualities that you would bring to the role on the college workshop application form. Please also submit a recent video of your playing to mycoregistrar@gmail.com
