OUR VENUE – COLLEGE OF THE ATLANTIC

Perched above Frenchman’s Bay, College of the Atlantic provides a magical oceanfront venue to “get away from it all” and immerse yourself in music.   A best kept secret, COA is not only the “greenest” college in the United States, it is one of the bluest, boasting its own peer and Maine Coast beach!

OUR STUDENTS

Our program is geared to serve students of all levels – from the novice who’s dusted off her guitar after 15 years, to performers and educators seeking to hone their skills with the masters.   While the majority of our students are adults, our program is open to focused high school students. 

STUDENT CONCERT



Our student concert is one of the culminating events of the week.   Participation is optional.  Often, a whole class will peform together.   Individuals are also encouraged to perform — eithermaterial they’ve been working on during the week, or other repertoire.

ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

Our venue is just minutes away from Acadia National Park.  Students often take advantage of our mid-day break for a ride or stroll on its extensive networks of carriage trails.  For those who do not have a car, the Island Explorer – a free shuttle – stops on campus taking you to all locations within the Park.

One of several towns on Mt. Desert Island, the town of Bar Harbor is 5 minutes from College of the Atlantic.  In addition to varied cuisine and shops, the town boasts a  variety of activities, inclouding whale-watching, sunset schooner tours of Frenchman’s Bay, kayaking, and even its own museum!
