Jeffrey Thomas & Corey Jamason, co-directors

JULY 7 - 20, 2014
an advanced training program for emerging professionals
and accomplished students of Historically Informed Performance Practice


Drawing on their distinguished roster of performers—named “the best American specialists in early music” by The Washington Post—the American Bach Soloists’ ACADEMY offers advanced conservatory-level students and young professionals unique opportunities to study and perform Baroque music in a multi-disciplinary learning environment. In addition to in-depth coachings and technical studies with masters of their particular instruments, string players, wind and brass players, continuo and keyboard players, and singers work together with all faculty members, gaining the perspectives of eminent and highly acclaimed professional artists from a variety of disciplines.

The ACADEMY is held in the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s exquisite facilities, recently opened in the heart of the city’s arts district. Located two blocks from Davies Symphony Hall (home of the San Francisco Symphony) and the War Memorial Opera House (home of the San Francisco Opera and San Francisco Ballet companies), the Conservatory offers state-of-the-art performance halls, classrooms, practice rooms, and teaching studios. Nearby housing is available at nominal cost to students. Jeffrey Thomas (artistic director of the American Bach Soloists) and Corey Jamason (principal keyboardist for American Bach Soloists and director of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s program in Early Music) are co-directors of the Academy.

Tuition for the two-week program is priced at $840. (Full tuition is $1,200 but all students will receive a 30% tuition subsidy scholarship, thanks to the generosity of private sponsors.) The Academy is funded in part by tuition and in part by ticket sales for Academy & Festival events. The student/teacher ratio ranges from 4:1 to 6:1.
