Monday, June 16 through Friday, June 20, 2014

The Summer Music Institute immerses students in grades 2-5, 6-8, and high school in a week of musical enrichment filled with opportunities that foster technical advancement and music growth. Students receive individualized instruction as they are engaged in varied ensemble experiences. The Summer Music Institute’s expert faculty nurtures students’ love of music through an exciting and comprehensive curriculum.

The Institute offers courses that complement and support the student’s individual study. Faculty lead the students in a variety of classes that foster an awareness of music concepts, strengthen music literacy, develop and sharpen ensemble skills, and engage the student as a musician in a broader sense. Students also enjoy the social aspect of making music with their peers at the Summer Music Institute.

A typical day includes many of the following offerings: Institute Chorus, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Music in New York, Sight-Singing, Orff Ensemble, Piano Ensemble, Chamber Music, Young People’s Ensemble, and Institute Orchestra. A picnic lunch and activities in Central Park are enjoyed by students and faculty each day. Special offerings include a field trip to one of New York’s cultural landmarks and a final concert for friends and family.

Students with two or more years of instrument instruction are eligible for admission. Applications may be downloaded here.
