Mannes Prep is open for six weeks during June and July. Summer students may continue lessons with their instrumental or vocal teachers or enroll in private Techniques of Music instruction. Classes are not offered, but chamber and jazz ensembles may be formed, enrollment permitting. Workshops and a July recital may be scheduled. Students may enroll in groups of four or six lessons only.
Summer Session provides students with a relaxed opportunity to begin a new or secondary instrument. New students who intend to continue at Mannes in September may, in special circumstances, be admitted for Summer Session. Admittance is by the customary audition and interview process with the director. No financial aid is available for Summer Session.
