For six weeks each summer the Killington Music Festival brings together aspiring young musicians and a nurturing internationally accomplished faculty. With the beauty of the Green Mountains as a backdrop the Festival allows dedicated students to focus on their musical growth through solo and chamber music study, master classes and frequent student concerts. The limited enrollment and collegial atmosphere of the festival assures personal attention for each student.

My name is David Rubinstein and I am writing to invite you to Killington Music Festival. I will be teaching violin and viola there this summer and would be happy to answer any questions you might have about the festival. The level of students for the festival varies from those who have studied for 3 or 4 years all the way to those students who are interested in going to conservatory as well as college students. The festival is based upon lessons and chamber music with lots of performance opportunities! Since it is based upon chamber music students are placed with other students of similiar age and level.
As a special treat this summer the wonderful violinist and fiddler Mark O'Connor will be there for a week to teach students bluegrass and fiddle as well as perform with the KMF orchestra. Here is the website http://www.killingtonmusicfestival.org/
