Let Us Take You to the Highest Level.
At Idyllwild Arts Academy, music is about the personal touch. The size of the Music Department is ideal for a high school: big enough to give developing classical artists many chances to perform—both in our orchestra and in chamber ensembles—and yet small enough to guarantee plenty of individual attention and instruction for every student. Our curriculum includes private lessons with musicians who are not only gifted university teachers, but successful professionals with Southern California’s world-class symphonies and recording studios. These teachers will be close to you only because Idyllwild is so close to Los Angeles and San Diego, where some of your own performances will take place. Idyllwild’s jazz musicians grow in the personal care of experienced professionals who have worked with legends like Miles Davis and Frank Zappa, and our songwriters learn from Elektra Records musicians who have both studio and publishing experience. Make beautiful music with us and start your own legend.
