On your Embark application, please indicate that you would like to compete and what piece you are planning to play. Young Artist Seminar students will receive additional instructions for completing the preliminary round. Junior Artist Seminar and Junior Music Program students need only bring an original piano reduction with them to camp. Rocky Ridge reserves the right to deny any repertoire entry for reasons of orchestration or duration.
Young Artist Seminar students will receive their orchestral repertoire approximately 2-4 weeks prior to the start of the program. For all other programs, music will be distributed during the first or second day of the program.
Rocky Ridge can provide you with bedding and towels for a $60 fee.
Our residential cabins are dorm-style with bunk beds; junior students will reside with their counselor and 3-6 roommates. Bathhouses with showers are just a short walk away. Adult program students have the option of residing in a private cabin with an attached bathroom for an additional fee.
All students applying for the Junior Artist Seminar or Young Artist Seminar must submit an audition video recording through their Embark application in order to be considered for admission.
Students applying for the Junior Music Program or Jazz Program are not required to submit an audition for admission and all levels of experience are welcome (although it is recommended for a student to have at least one year of experience on their primary instrument); however, a video recording is required as part of the application for merit scholarship consideration. This video recording will be submitted through Embark as part of the online application.
Adult Seminar participants do not need to submit an audition recording. All levels of experience are welcome.
New Chamberre applicants may be contacted by the program leaders to submit audio/video.
All of our teachers are professionally background-checked.
We’re confident that we can accommodate any schedule. If you are able to do weekly lessons, you can receive our semester rate (pro-rated to whichever week you start lessons), but if not our “Flex-Pack” lessons will allow you to find time for music even in the busiest schedule.
Yes! Rocky Ridge is proud to partner with HB Woodsongs of Boulder to offer short-term instrument rentals to our students. You can rent an instrument from Woodsongs for just a few days to bring to your trial lesson at Rocky Ridge; if you like it, your fees will be applied towards a long-term rental or purchase. If you don’t like it, take it back! Stop by the RRMA office to pick up a rental form.
Absolutely! We offer 30 minutes trial lessons with any of our teachers for $25. No commitment, no obligation. Just call 303-449-1106 or email MusicAcademy@RockyRidge.org to schedule a trial lesson.
