Blue Mountain Festival's mission is to pursue excellence in music-making in a highly-structured, nurturing environment. At the core of Blue Mountain Festival's vision is the inclusion and integration of learners from diverse socio-economic, educational and cultural backgrounds.
The foundation of our teaching model centers on multi-level mentoring where our professional faculty not only provide high-level instruction but also foster a supportive musical environment that encourages each student to pursue individual excellence. In turn, our advanced students are expected to demonstrate the same encouraging attitude toward newer students, honing and teaching their musical craft as well as learning how to be team players and civic-minded mentors within the microcosm of the chamber music experience.
Don't play like you don't want to be heard. You should be heard. You want to be heard. You want to say something. So say it. Say it well.
-- Dr. Luba Sindler
Unique to the Blue Mountain experience is the extensive amount of individualized coaching and teaching each student receives. Students spend 4 to 6 hours per day in private and small group instruction with our world-class faculty, who are dedicated to both teaching and performing. The faculty and student performances constitute one of the most important and creative aspects of the program. All recitals are free and open to the general public.
