Last summer's courses at  Lyndon State were a blast and we'll return there again this summer. - Lyndon State College has a beautiful campus with comfortable single room housing in suites for six and delicious cafeteria meals. NEK was listed in 2006 by National Geographic Society as one of the most desirable place to visit in the country and the ninth most desirable place to visit in the world. Make this your summer study location! Join us for five full days of coursework and optional evening activities. Make your summer study a personal retreat. Stay and study on campus. Live and learn together with music educators from all over Vermont and beyond.

Two separate courses offered, both three credits each with 3 graduate credits through Castleton University or as workshop credit only.
