The 75th Annual IU Summer Music Clinic is postponed until June 2021

Message from Dr. Eric Smedley, Clinic Director:

March 26, 2020
It is with great sadness that I share the news with you that the 2020 IU Summer Music Clinic has been cancelled. The IU Jacobs School of Music has decided to cancel all pre-college summer programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will very much miss the beautiful music making that happens on our gorgeous campus every June. We are looking forward in earnest to welcoming you to the 2021 Summer Music Clinic.


The Indiana University Summer Music Clinic offers students a musically challenging experience on the beautiful wooded IU campus. Students live in university housing with final concerts presented in the Musical Arts Center. All members of clinic staff are experienced and successful music instructors in their own right. A number of recital and program opportunities are presented throughout the week.

Who is eligible?

Students currently (spring 2021) in grades 7 through 12.
Because this is primarily a band and orchestra camp, every student must participate on a wind, orchestral string, or percussion instrument.
Harp, piano, guitar and voice may not be the student's primary instrument; however, guitar and piano are secondary instruments and may audition for the jazz band.


The IU Summer Music Clinic operates an Orchestra, two Concert Bands, and two Jazz Bands. 2020 Clinicians would have included Rodney DorseyDustin Barr, and Frank Diaz. The program also offers small ensemble opportunities in Brass, Woodwind and String ensembles, and master classes with Jacobs School of Music faculty.

Class offerings
  • Conducting
  • Composition
  • Music Theory
  • Leadership
  • Double-Reed Making
  • Jazz Improvisation
  • Woodwind Ensemble
  • Brass Techniques

  • Percussion Ensemble
How can I get more information on the program?
