Course Catalog Introduction

Virtual NEMC includes online musical course offerings which mirror and enhance the traditional NEMC experience. Course registration will be available shortly.

During the four weeks of Virtual NEMC, musical classes will follow a Monday to Friday schedule. Students will be directly engaged in online courses for about 12-15 hours per week. These hours include 2 half-hour private lessons, performance-based group classes, technique-building seminars, and literature exploration. These practical and engaging courses, led by our faculty of professional artist-educators, will help all students achieve success in their musical, social, and personal lives.

Each class is 45 minutes in length and meets either one or two times per week. This allows for students to choose a wide variety of courses and to learn from numerous faculty and guests. All students will be required to take the following courses specific to their instrument: private lessons, studio class, and performance master-class. The remaining hours can be scheduled with applied classes and electives. Students should not exceed 18 hours of class time per week.

The final course schedule will depend on student enrollment. I will make every effort to accommodate scheduling requests. We are excited for you to join us at Virtual NEMC!
