The Governor's Program for Gifted Children

GPGC 2024 | JUNE 9 – JULY 20

Musically Gifted

The Musically Gifted section of the GPGC offers special classes and opportunities for students who wish to pursue a career in music, or who have a strong desire to pursue music as a vocation. Younger musicians can learn and expand their skills in private lessons as well as by participating in the GPGC Orchestra and Choir. They can also study music history and theory.

The program is seven weeks long, which provides for a greater depth of instruction, in more areas, without the normal pressure associated with shorter music camps. The GPGC’s Musically Gifted program focuses on developing musical talent, but not to the extent that it precludes everything else. Participants will have the chance to take other classes, in academics and fine arts, according to their interest and will have ample free time.

Admission to the MG section is by audition. Please contact us for more information.

One of the best parts of the program

for me was, for once, it allowed me to be one of the "normal" kids, instead of the "brainiac" nerd. I cherish that gift.
