High School Violin Institute (one week)

During the one-week violin institute, participants will develop their playing skills and prepare for further serious study in high school and beyond.

Below are examples of past instructors; 2018 faculty will be announced in the spring.

Program length: 1 week
Program dates:
June 16, 2018 to June 22, 2018
Tuition: $1,230
Age range: Students currently in grades 9-12

The violin institute is an intensive experience. In daily classes, participants will focus on expanding their technical skills, musical knowledge, and artistry.

Individual assignments will be given out prior to the student's arrival. Students will have ample time to continue practicing their piece while here, and they will receive lessons from the faculty to help cultivate a higher level of performance. Students will have the opportunity to play in masterclasses which will be at the discretion of the faculty. Their work will accumulate in a performance at the end of the week.

Audition Requirements

Please submit a video recording of both of the following. Piano accompaniment is required.

  • One movement (either first or last) of a romantic concerto
  • One 3-octave scale (student's choice)
