Campus & Housing

Study and reside in the gorgeous and temperate city of Santa Barbara, aka the "American Riviera"

There isn't a More Beautiful Campus than the Music Academy

Our Main Campus

The Music Academy’s home is Miraflores, a stunning 10-acre garden estate about 90 miles north of Los Angeles. The campus is just a minute’s walk from Butterfly Beach, considered by many to be the most beautiful in the area, with stunning sunset views.

Miraflores is the focus of most of the summer’s activities and events: orchestra rehearsals, chamber recitals, solo recitals, masterclasses, lessons, and individual practice sessions. A lounge, dining patio, music library, and sprawling beautiful gardens provide spaces for leisure and relaxation on campus.

Our Residential Campus

Housing is just minutes from the Music Academy at Westmont College, a 111-acre private campus with breathtaking ocean views and wooded paths. Fellows have their own room, and share a bathroom with their suite. Married housing is not available.

The dining hall provides delicious hot buffet meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and fellows can take advantage of a wide range of recreational facilities, including a fitness center, swimming pool, gymnasium, tennis courts, art museum, library, observatory, and scenic lawns and gardens.
