AMF Opera Coach Fellowship will return in 2020 with an exciting new program. Meanwhile, please check out our Collaborative Piano Program in order to participate in this year’s program.


The Atlantic Music Festival’s Opera Coach Fellowship is a summer program established with the goal of providing intensive immersion into the world of Opera Coaching for advanced pianists.

The program is a division of the AMF . During the four-week program, pianists collaborate directly with the workshop’s artist-faculty members in preparation of all performances at the program.

In addition, participants may take advantage of seminars and master classes offered by Collaborative Piano Program and Piano Institute and Seminar as well as Open Seminars available throughout the festival season.

Program Details

  • All Opera Coach Fellowship recipients receive full coverage of tuition, housing, and meals for the duration of the festival season.

  • Fellow coaches participate in preparation of all Opera Workshop events.

  • The program offers opportunities to collaborate with Opera Workshop artist-faculty members as well as festival artists, conductors, and composers.

  • Important note: Opera Coach Fellowship and Collaborative Piano Fellowship are two separate programs. If you wish to audition for both programs, you may do so by meeting audition requirements for both programs. However, you may be enrolled in one program at the same time.
