Summer Theory Preparation

To help prepare you for the part of your academic studies that are in the area of Music Theory, the Cleveland Institute of Music recommends that students consider using the summer months to focus on the fundamentals of theory, since this is an important component of the Bachelor, Master and Doctoral degrees, in addition to coursework that is available within our Diploma programs of study (Artist Certificate, Professional Studies, and Artist Diploma).

Please check the theory expectations for your appropriate level of program:

Student Life

Welcome! As Associate Dean for Student Affairs, it is my responsibility, with the help of CIM faculty, staff and students (as well as colleagues at Case Western Reserve University) to encourage students to learn and develop by offering a full range of programs, support services, and experiential opportunities.

We promote student learning and facilitate students' development with career, cultural, emotional, intellectual, physical, psychological and social dimensions. Through programs and services, we act as catalysts in the creation of an environment that extends learning beyond the classroom, studio and practice room; encouraging students' personal growth. We challenge students to be engaged citizens, creating a campus environment respectful of differences while valuing the voices of others.

It is the goal of Student Affairs to foster the holistic development of students to prepare them for a lifetime of contribution to society.
