High School Violin Institute

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 20, 2020 to June 26, 2020
Tuition: $1,575
Age range: Students currently in grades 9-12

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 culminate in a performance at the end of the week.

 

Audition Requirements

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