Our philosophy focuses on integrating and improving your technique, your physical well being, and your artistry.
TOI takes place in the beautiful Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico. Each year, 24 promising Young Artists are invited to spend the month working with our esteemed faculty & to grow artistically with their fellow Artists.
ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL YOUNG ARTISTS:

The Young Artists are assigned a new aria and language group (French, German, Italian, and English) each week and rotate to the next language the following week. These are the arias you will perform at the weekly concerts.
Throughout the month, Guest Faculty also present sessions on the business of singing, media, branding and marketing, performance psychology and dramatic interpretation.
The total tuition for TOI's program is $5000 and includes everything listed above. Scholarship opportunties are available.
Travel to and from the Taos Ski Valley is the responsibility of the artist.
