The CU Denver Summer Music Industry Program is designed to offer high school students, ages 14-18, a window into what it takes to be a musician today. The program dates are June 14-26, 2015. We plan to announce application and enrollment deadlines by Fall 2014. Significant scholarships will be available for families with demonstrated economic hardships, as well as competitive merit awards.

Here is a sample daily schedule from 2014. We have heard your feedback and will be making some changes to this for next year, including more musical use of the Morning and Afternoon activities, and a night off! We are also planning another level of music business and recording arts classes for returning students.
