The American Institute of Musical Studies (AIMS) prepares young artists for a professional career in music. For singers and collaborative pianists, our six-week program provides intensive instruction in opera and lieder repertoire, with many concert and recital opportunities. For instrumentalists, AIMS offers the chance to perform under the baton of some of Europe’s most dynamic conductors.

The program provides everything the serious musician needs to successfully embark on a professional
career: intensive study in technique, immersion in opera and lieder rep, consultation on career strategy and numerous networking opportunities. AIMS also serves as a unique introduction to the European music world, and has helped launch the European careers of many young musicians. No conservatory, university or summer experience offers so much instruction in so short a period of time.
