Music in the Mountains Tour



"Both girls had such an amazing trip! They came back so energized to take their trio to the next level.  They are already discussing pieces to learn over the summer in preparation for next year.  They said Andrew Cook was amazing and they want to take more coaching from him to prepare for possible competitions next year.  This was truly a transformative trip for them.  So thank you!" – Kay


The Music in the Mountains Tour is an intense 3 day local tour which includes daily coaching, master classes with Idyllwild Arts Academy faculty, workshops, paintball, hiking, games, nightly smores, incredible food, and a Final Concert at the Academy.
