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 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, Creative Music, Orff Ensemble, and Piano, Vocal, and Percussion Ensembles.

Each 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.

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.
