The Duxbury Music Festival is a 16 day intensive program for the study and performance of solo and chamber repertoire for undergraduate and graduate students and adult professionals. Festival Director, Stephen Deitz, has gathered to this historic and picturesque town a renowned faculty who offer chamber performances, as well as individual instruction and ensemble coaching.

A select group of approximately 20 students will participate in multiple private lessons and intensive ensemble coachings as well as a variety of daily performance opportunities. A generous allocation of time for daily practice ensures that students will have the opportunity to reap the benefits of their lessons and coachings.

The program includes: three 1-hour private lessons, four 1-hour ensemble coachings, 5 student recitals, four faculty concerts, solo and chamber music master classes, solo and chamber ensemble competitions, a Winners Concert, generous practice time, bayside room and board, numerous pool parties and barbecues, a sailing event on Duxbury Bay and excursions to nearby Duxbury Beach.
