The Summer IM course has been one of the best things, if not the best thing for my playing. I have learned so much about the horn, and about what I need to do to be successful, but also how to be happy and healthy while pursuing this career. I’ve met some of the best people, and gotten to work with horn players who are now all more friends than colleagues, which is like no other experience.
Most important, this course brought back a lot of love for playing for me that I not only have been missing during the pandemic, but throughout much of my college years. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity, as it has made me feel like this is not just going to be my job, but my passion again.

I’ve never taken a course like this before. It has encouraged me to experiment and take risks with my playing while simultaneously putting these lessons into practice. This is all incredibly valuable and has shown me a completely different perspective than what I have been exposed to before.

“This is a fantastic course from the musicianship side. It shows you how to win an audition and set goals. In addition, it helps you recognize that as a musician you are also a business owner and need to know how to make each dollar that comes in work for you. Great for anyone concerned about making a living as a musician!”

“Anybody could benefit from a program like this, especially if you are looking for something that has good structure, balance and is also very inspirational. I honestly don't think there are many other courses like this. Rupal and Andrew are super organized about every detail and their specific way of giving the course is excellent. Both of them have real life experience and it very clearly works.”
