[PDF, 3 pages: Requires the free Adobe Reader to view and print.]
Before you apply, please read the information letter included in the application packet, as it contains essential information.
After downloading and completing the application, mail it to HCMW Director, Alan Geier. His address is on the form.
All applications received by March 13 will be held until then, and subsequently reviewed by the Director and Associate Director. You should expect to receive notice of acceptance by no later than April 20. If you haven't heard by then, contact Alan Geier.
Instrumental balance is the crucial consideration for each workshop week. The more flexible you can be regarding weeks you are able to attend, the easier it is to put rosters together, and the better your chances for acceptance (this holds especially true for first-time applicants).
