  • Student preparation is a critical component of a successful Institute. This includes all review material. Please consider this as you select the appropriate class registration, with your teacher's guidance, for your young musician. All registrations must be returned by May 1, 2022, to permit adequate time for participants to review and polish the Institute repertoire. Enrollment is limited so register early.

  • Any registration postmarked after May 1 will be assessed a $100 registration fee.
