Cougar String Camp Registration Form

This form is only for those NOT applying for a scholarship. Scholarship applicants should click on this link for the scholarship form.

Before beginning the registration process, please carefully read the entire form and make sure that you have all the answers (especially the skill level teacher assessment). Payment is by credit card only, Visa or MasterCard. If you cannot pay by credit card, then please e-mail Meredith Arksey and she will arrange for you to pay by check. This form does not "save" and you’ll have to start over again if you cannot finish it in one sitting.

Everyone is required to submit a recording consisting of a two or three-octave scale, once played slowly for tone and vibrato, and once played in 16th notes at mm quarter-note=100, and two to four minutes of a piece or pieces of your choice that show lyrical and technical skill (may be accompanied or unaccompanied). 

To submit recording, please see How to Send Your Recording on drop-down menu
