Welcome! I am delighted that you are interested in joining our community of women and look forward to reviewing your application!

The Summer Strings Academy for Girls is an educational summer festival for female-identifying string students. The SSAG is dedicated to creating a safe space to uplift, empower, and inspire young women. During the 2-week academy, students will receive weekly private lessons from our all-female faculty, perform in studio and master classes with guest artists, participate in discussions with pioneering women in the classical music industry, and watch virtual concerts by some of today's most exciting performers. The SSAG strives to ignite a shift in the world of classical music education by providing our students with the confidence, knowledge, and skills necessary for navigating this male-dominated industry.
