Admission to the program is by audition or invitation. Our program accepts both intermediate and advanced students. There are no restrictions as to age or affiliation. Pre-formed groups are encouraged to apply. An ability to learn, as well as to work with others, will be considered in admitting students to the program. Chamber music requires all players’ attendance and participation. Admission assumes the student’s interest in and availability for scheduled activities. Due to the low faculty/student ratio that is part of the TIFS philosophy, available positions are extremely limited and early application is strongly suggested. Room and board are not available. Out-of-town participants must make their own arrangements.

Upon notification of acceptance, a $350 deposit must be submitted to reserve your spot. The remainder of the tuition is due by May 31, 2013.
