Thank you for your interest in Rocky Ridge Music Center!
Please be sure to thoroughly read all the application instructions on the appropriate program page of the Rocky Ridge website.

To safely provide summer residential music programs in 2021, we are planning to open our campus with a reduced enrollment and will be postponing large ensembles (ex. choir and orchestra) until 2022. We will follow the most current CDC, State and County guidelines and recommendations for camp opening and safety.

If you applied and were accepted to a program last year, you DO NOT need to reapply for that same program. Please let us know as soon as possible about your desire to attend the 2021 program in question.
