CIM Winter Intensives

Learn virtually from the world’s best musicians & teachers

Are you pursuing a career in music? Whether you’re preparing for conservatory or graduate auditions, focusing on winning your next professional job or honing your performance skills, you can learn from the Cleveland Institute of Music’s acclaimed conservatory faculty this winter.   

For CIM's Winter Intensives, faculty members have curated a mix of master classes, demonstrations, discussions and private lessons* that will prepare you for success, no matter what your next step is. These intensives are conducted exclusively online, building on two decades of experience with virtual studio teaching at CIM. 

*Each session, except for music theory, is open to both participants and observers; only participants will receive lessons and the opportunity to perform in master classes.
