Interlochen Online Learning Experience

Interlochen Online's learning experience is designed to be world-class, inspiring, and flexible. Learn more about each of our online offerings: courses, certificates, and private lessons.


Interlochen Online music and art courses are four weeks long and have been expertly designed by artists, educators, and creatives to provide step-by-step instruction so you can learn at a pace that works for you.

You will connect with your instructor and fellow students in the Interlochen Online learning environment through messages and chats, and every week features a live, hour-long video class meeting where you can learn directly from your instructor. 

Each week you will create something and get direct, personalized feedback from your instructor to help you improve and grow. You will finish the course with new practical skills and budding collaborations to propel your artistic growth.


Each certificate program is composed of three four-week courses and offers a unique opportunity to delve deeper into your craft while showcasing your achievements with an impressive credential.

Depending on the chosen program, courses may be taken sequentially, concurrently, or in a student-determined order.

Upon completion of their program, participants will receive a physical certificate and a digital certificate for your résumé, college application, or LinkedIn profile.

Certificates for students under 18 are accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS); high school-age students will also receive an official transcript to share with their current school for consideration for high school credit.

Private Lessons

When you sign up for weekly private lessons through Interlochen Online, you’ll be paired with an acclaimed professional artist in your chosen discipline. Your instructor will tailor each 50-minute online session to your age, skill level, background, and needs, helping you achieve your personal artistic goals.

Sessions are offered on an a la carte basis; register for your desired number of lessons and add more as needed.
