Dear Rocky Ridge students, families, and friends,

In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, we hope you and your loved ones continue to be safe and healthy. The well-being of all students, faculty, and staff is of the utmost importance to us here at Rocky Ridge Music Center. This week, after careful consideration, Rocky Ridge Music Center made the decision to cancel our in-person 2020 Summer Programs in Estes Park in our effort to keep our community safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

While we are sheltering in place, music-making and learning need not stop. In some sense, we have more freedom to experiment, and try innovative ideas in teaching and performing using technology. Our most amazing, experienced and dedicated faculty and I have been in intense discussions and planning meetings, and I am confident that the students will have an extraordinary experience in this new online platform.

It is in this spirit of excitement about new frontier of learning and discovery that we are offering virtual versions of each of our camps at reduced rates! Please see below for more information on each program.

We thank you for your commitment to Rocky Ridge, and wish you and your family well through this unusual period. Please email RRMC@rockyridge.org or call 303- 449-1106 if you have any questions.
