About Eastman Immersion

Petar KodzasIf you’re passionate about music—if you can’t wait to get home from school so that you can practice, if the highlight of the week is orchestra rehearsal, if you scour the web for the recordings and videos of your favorite groups or artists—I hope you’ll take this opportunity to learn more about Eastman Immersion. 

In this gap year program for students 17 years old and up, you will spend a full academic year practicing, performing, listening, and sharing your art as part of a rich cultural and intellectual community. At the Eastman School of Music, we always strive not only to provide an intensive, professional musical experience, but also to nurture inquiring minds so that they can become effective leaders in the future.

I look forward to seeing you here for Eastman Immersion, the next exciting stage in your life in music.
