Students in rising grades 2-5 and 6-8 work with SMI’s outstanding faculty to strengthen musicianship and technical advancement on their instrument. All Institute sessions are designed to complement and support the student’s individual study, while students work collaboratively, have fun, and expand their creativity and musical thinking.  Sessions feature Chamber Ensembles, Institute Chorus, Institute Orchestra, Sing-Singing, Orff Ensemble, and Piano, Vocal and Percussion Ensembles.

SMI-ChorusEach afternoon, students and faculty head across the street to Central Park for a picnic lunch and supervised outdoor activities. Special happenings throughout the week include guest performances and a field trip to a New York cultural landmark. The week concludes with a closing concert for friends and family. Come join us for this extraordinary learning experience.

The Institute welcomes intermediate and advanced students, as well as students with two or more years of instrument instruction.  Students not currently enrolled in individual lessons at Diller-Quaile may apply.
