Students may obtain private lessons from members of the School of Music faculty, many of whom are members of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Vancouver Opera Orchestra. Sectional rehearsals and master classes are given by professional musicians and teachers. Each week of study ends with a concert for parents, friends and the general public - Friday afternoon in the first week and Saturday afternoon in the second week.
In addition to the intensive music making, the students have opportunities to enjoy various recreational activities and cultural centres on campus, including the Aquatic Centre, Museum of Anthropology, Art Gallery, gardens, bookstore, movies, and a weekly dance party.
Students who choose to stay on campus this year will be housed, fully supervised, in the Place Vanier Residence which is located a few minutes' walk from the School of Music.
Parents of students from out of town please note that we will be happy to meet your students at the airport or bus station and transport them to UBC.
Each evening after dinner, students have the opportunity to perform a solo or small group piece in the musical "lottery", which will qualify them for a chance at a $100 and many other prizes.
By providing outstanding young musicians the opportunity to become familiar with UBC, the School of Music, and its faculty, we feel that we are making a sincere effort to bring the university and its programmes to our community.
