It is highly recommended that if you are traveling to Bloomington by air, that you fly into the Indianapolis International Airport (IND). Flight arrivals into Indianapolis should be scheduled between 10:00 AM and noon on Sunday, June 17th. This span of time will allow for any delays, travel to Bloomington (about an hour), and arrival on campus for Registration and Check-In for the Summer Music Clinic.

Round-trip shuttle transportation from the Indianapolis Airport to Bloomington may be purchased online in advance from Go Express Travel. Please request a drop-off at "Willkie North" Residence Center. We will have Summer Music Clinic staff members waiting at the stop to accompany all shuttle students to the dorm.

The Finale Concert on Saturday, June 23rd should be completed by 4:00 PM. We recommend that for traveling home, you arrange a return shuttle for the earliest time after this concert. Because the orchestra will be performing first, students in this ensemble will be available to take any shuttle after 2:30 PM. Students participating in either of the two Clinic Bands should plan on arranging for a shuttle that leaves after 4:15 PM. In addition, we recommend a flight out of the Indianapolis Airport after 6:00 PM to allow for travel time and check-in at the airport.

Our Summer Music Clinic manager will contact those students and families whom we anticipate will be traveling to Bloomington by air.  Because we understand the anxiety of students traveling by air unaccompanied, please don’t hesitate to contact us at or at 812-855-1372 if you have any questions or concerns.


All Summer Music Clinic students will live in a residence hall within walking distance of the Jacobs School of Music. Each student will stay in an air-conditioned double room with each floor being equipped with two community restrooms, each with private shower and toilet stalls. Students should plan on bringing:

  • a set of extra-long twin sheets and blanket (or a sleeping bag)

  • a pillow

  • towels

  • rooms do not contain phones.  Students may bring cell phones, although they will be required to be turned off during all classes, rehearsals, and concerts.

While in the residence hall, students will be highly supervised. Each floor will have multiple Summer Music Clinic counselors in residence living with the students.
