Over the course of four days, students will collaborate with leading musicians, educators and leaders in learning activities designed to be immersive, interactive and participatory. Participants will engage with similarly passionate and dedicated musicians while focusing on topics such as innovation in the arts, application of entrepreneurial thinking and business skills, assessing individual goals and crafting a personal mission.

This year's keynote speakers will include Lee Koonce, president and artistic director of the Gateways Music Festival; and Yuki Numata Resnick, artistic director of Buffalo String Works, an El Sistema inspired organization making classical music accessible to disadvantaged communities. Other presenters include faculty and staff of Eastman School of Music covering topics such as "Convincing Others of Your Vision," "A Diverse Musicians Job Hunt," and "Grant Writing."

"As leaders in today's music schools, it is our goal to prepare students for a field that is regularly shifting patterns. We are constantly charged with navigating a continually evolving professional music world for our graduates while preparing them for the opportunities and challenges that these changes present," said James Doser, director of the Institute for Music Leadership at Eastman. "We are extremely grateful to Yamaha for reflecting our purpose by supporting these graduate students, giving them the opportunity to move further in their careers."

The program provides future arts leaders an opportunity to collaborate with national university music schools and departments' faculty, staff and administrators, providing an invaluable window into the world of higher education administration. Upon completing the program, all fellows will be granted a certificate recognizing their award and participation.
