Summer enrichment programs take place:
Check Class Descriptions for the program in which you are interested. Morning only students will be escorted to the Main Lobby area to wait for pick up at 12:00 pm. Afternoon only students will be met in the Lobby beginning at 12:45 pm. Participants of other HCC Summer Enrichment Programs (Kids on Campus, etc.) during the same week as a TMI Program will be picked up from and/or escorted to these programs by staff personnel. It is the parent/guardians’ responsibility to inform The Music Institute if their student is attending another camp during a TMI program week.
Drop-Off & Supervision
Students will be met by TMI staff in the Horowitz Center Lobby each morning no earlier than 8:15 am. Students are always supervised while on campus. For the safety of your children, we encourage parents to escort their students to and from the Horowitz Center. For parents/guardians unable to park and escort their students into the building, you may drop them off at the cross walk near the main HCC Bus Stop (enter the HCC campus via Little Patuxent Parkway and go straight through the traffic circle). There is a straight path across the quad to the Horowitz Center. As a safety measure, students are not permitted on campus earlier than 8:15am. Those dropped off prior to that time will attend Start Up Time with a charge of $5 per day.
At the end of each day, students will wait in the HVPA lobby for your arrival. We require that you or another approved adult sign out your student each day. Students may wait outside at a pick-up location designated by you only if we have written permission as noted on your registration form or via a signed note from home. Any student not picked up by 4:45 p.m. will be asked to wait in Wind Down Time. Fees of $5 per 15-minute period will be charged.
Start Up and Wind Down
Before- and after-care for all summer enrichment programs at HCC is provided by the Actors’ Institute and is located in HVPA 120.

A brief orientation will take place at 8:30 AM on the first day of every program in HVPA 140. Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet the staff and ask questions about the program at that time.
If your student MUST leave early or arrive late due to a doctor’s appointment or other personal matter, please call The Music Institute Office (443.518.4297) or provide a note in advance.
What To Bring
Students should arrive daily with their instrument(s), their assigned music, a notebook or binder with writing paper for notes, and a pencil with eraser. It is helpful for each student to have a backpack or tote bag. Please provide snacks and drinks for your child/children.
Students who will attend HCC’s SEP for a full day (in conjunction with other HCC departmental SEPs) should plan on attending the supervised lunch from 12 pm to 1 pm. Bag lunches are required. Students will watch a G or PG-rated movie during the supervised lunch period. Students should bring change or $1 bills for the vending machines. Students will be escorted to vending machines at the beginning of Lunchtime.
There will be a performance on the last day of each program week highlighting what the participants have learned and accomplished. Please check with the teacher for program details such as the time and location of the demonstration/performance.
If your student is on any medication that is to be taken during the day, the TMI Medical Form, found on the website or in the office, must completed. You must submit this form by orientation either in person or by fax to 443.518.4294. If your student takes medication during the school year, please continue this regimen during class hours. Please note that TMI faculty and staff may not dispense medication.
HCC Summer Enrichment Programs
During the summer, several departments at HCC offer summer enrichment programs, both full- and half-day. We all work together to coordinate schedules so that if a participant wants to attend an AM day program in one area, he/she can attend a PM program in another. Program personnel escort students between these programs. No children are allowed to walk unattended by an escort between any of the HCC programs.
