When do I need to arrive for my summer program?

Check in will happen on the first day of each program. For youth programs, registration will take place until noon. We will provide lunch and parents are asked to stay for a brief orientation from 1pm-2pm.

For the College Intensive, check in will take place on the first day between 9am-6pm. Please note that work-study students and counselors will be asked to arrive early for training.

The check in for adult programs typically takes place the morning of the first day.

Please call our office (303-449-1106) or email rrmc@rockyridge.org with any questions or concerns.

Will I receive music in advance?

College Intensive students will receive their chamber repertoire before arrival. For all other programs, music will be distributed during the first or second day of the program.

Do you provide bedding?

Rocky Ridge can provide you with bedding and towels for a $85 fee. Please indicate your interest in this option in the paperwork we send you once you have been accepted.

Where will I live on campus?

Our residential cabins are dorm-style with bunk beds; youth program students will reside with their counselor and 3-6 roommates. College students will be assigned a cabin with 3-6 roommates. Bathhouses with showers are just a short walk away. Adult Piano Seminar students have the option of residing in a private cabin with an attached bathroom for an additional fee.

Take a look at our cabin gallery below for a sampling of residential cabins and practice cabins on campus.

Do I need to submit an audition recording?

All students applying for the Junior Artist Immersion or College Intensive programs must submit an audition video recording through their Acceptd application in order to be considered for admission.

Students applying for Jazz From A to Z 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 Acceptd as part of the online application.

Students applying for the Jumpstart or Nuestras Raíces program need not submit any recording or audition.

Adult Piano Seminar participants do not need to submit an audition recording. All levels of experience are welcome.

Do you screen your teachers before they work one-on-one with my child?

All of our teachers are professionally background-checked.
