Sacred Music Intensive Workshop

The Sacred Music Intensive Workshop

The Third Annual Sacred Music Intensive Course

June 5 - 9, 2017

Registration is Closed. Please check back with us next year!

Welcome from the Course Directors!

Welcome to the Jacobs School of Music Sacred Music Intensive Course website! This special summer course, now in its third year, supplies continuing education enrichment to church musicians, ages 18 and older, who seek a supportive and stimulating environment in which to sharpen skills and engage new concepts and repertoire. Attendees have the option of tailoring their weeks course of study from a variety of offerings of interest to organists, choral conductors and vocalists.

Read testimonials from past attendees found elsewhere on this site and you will gain insight into the SMI experience. Perhaps this best sums up the vision of SMI:

You are to be commended for your friendly, welcoming ways and acceptance of each participant, whatever their gifts and skill level. Your teaching helped each person to take their own “next step.” This was a model for ministry and teaching.

Please consider how the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music’s Sacred Music Intensive Course might enrich your development as a church musician, and do let us know of any questions this site does not address.
