Welcome from the Director

Scott A. Jones, director of YSMPScott A. Jones, Youth Summer Music Programs Director


Each summer for more than 35 years, Ohio State's School of Music has been a place where young musicians from across the country gather to enrich their musical lives. We delight in presenting our Youth Summer Music Programs. 

Students, we invite you to take part in these programs specifically designed to further your understanding of—and love for—music. Our world-class faculty has crafted rich experiences to engage you as a musician, person and scholar during your stay. We challenge you to invest fully in all that is offered and to take advantage of the resources that abound in our School of Music. You will find our faculty and staff to be deeply interested in your well-being while a guest on our campus.

We hope that you will join us this summer at Ohio State!
