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.

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 2018 violin institute will focus on "The Art of Performance: Parlor Pieces, or Short Pieces" and will feature works by Fritz Kreisler among others. 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
