Boston University Tanglewood Institute

It starts here

As a student at BUTI, you become part of the Tanglewood continuum – a rich and expanding family of artists. From your peer musicians in training to teachers who inspire, all the way through to the TMC Fellows, members of the BSO, and rock stars in the field, you can see yourself every step of the way. All it takes is one summer and you’ll forever be a part of this community of artists, educators, leaders, and advocates. What you’ll all share is the Tanglewood experience. From BUTI to the BSO and beyond, your future is right here.    

Begin at BUTI

Here, you can expect a transformational summer of music making and growth. You’ll step outside your comfort zone to challenge yourself, broaden your perspective, and forge bonds that last a lifetime. Like we said, it starts here. Together. Find your program.
