We are thrilled to announce that we will be offering in-person workshops on our beautiful Idyllwild campus this summer! There will be a new look and feel to the experience, as we adapt to the current health and safety concerns. We will be offering fewer workshops due to the new safety limitations on gatherings, but will continue our tradition of offering the highest caliber programs and intensives for the experience of a lifetime. We will be offering Teen, Adult and Native American Arts workshops this summer.
Teen registration is NOW OPEN – Register today! Make sure to apply early, as space will be limited.
Offerings are subject to change.

Application Fee: There is a nonrefundable $50 application fee. Only one application fee is charged per summer season. If you enroll in more than one program, you will not be charged a second application fee.
Lab Fee: Lab Fees cover the materials and supplies necessary for each student to participate in the program. The Lab Fee varies from program to program based on the amount of materials and supplies provided to the students. Please see the course description for the cost per program. You may still need to purchase and bring additional materials not covered by this fee for your program.
Tuition: Below is a breakdown of our Teen Programs’ tuition cost based on the length of the program.
|PROGRAM LENGTH||APPLICATION FEE*||HEALTH & SAFETY FEE||RESIDENT TUITION 2021||DAY TUITION 2021|
Residential tuition covers meals, housing, and the intensive or workshop, program instruction, concerts, student performances, student life, private instruction, and art showings.
Day tuition covers lunch, intensive or workshop, program instruction, concerts, student performances, student life, private instruction, and art showings.
The Health and Safety Fee helps cover the increased cost of running a program with COVID-19 safety precautions.
The current health crisis is ever-changing and best practices for safety are constantly evolving. At this time, we anticipate the following processes to help keep students safe. Guidance from state and local authorities will determine actual policies in Summer 2021.
We ask that students start exercising increased precautions (stay at home as much as possible, wear masks in public spaces, increased hygiene practices) two weeks before arriving on campus, and to continue to exercise as many precautions as possible while traveling to Idyllwild. Other safety regulations include:
- Requiring students to provide COVID test results before arrival to campus.
- Holding smaller classes in well ventilated or outdoor spaces.
- Only two students per dorm room.
- Staggering Dining Hall meal times to accommodate smaller groups of students at a time.
- Daily Health Symptom screenings.
- Social distancing rules and wearing masks at all times on campus.
Students who do not follow all health and safety guidelines will be subject to school discipline, up to and including being immediately dismissed from the program and sent home.
Due to the increased cost of running programs during the pandemic, we will not be offering marketing-based discounts. The Honor Ensemble Discount will still be available – more details coming soon. Scholarships are still available based on financial need.

“Thank You! Drawstring Bead & Quill Medicine Pouch was a new experience, my first tiem taking an online class. I also have never worked with porcupine quills; I was happy for this new understanding. Navajo Loom Beading/Cuff with Jennifer Ben was just as interesting, intricate and fascinating.
I have come away with a very beautiful Beaded Cuff and a very memorable experience. The real perk — taking the classes with my two granddaughters, 14- and 16-years-old.”

“Megan is really enjoying the Songwriting Workshop. She loved it so much that she enrolled in the Vocal & Choral Performance Workshop next week!"
"Thank you to the entire faculty and staff of Jazz in the Pines Student Workshop for keeping the spirit of Idyllwild alive. Our family isn't comparing this online year to what "should" have been; we're comparing it to what the summer would have been like without any Idyllwild at all.This has been amazing. 2020 has demanded unprecedented improvisation from all of us. Who is better suited to this moment than a bunch of jazz musicians?"
