Summer Arts Institute String Studio
6th through 11th grades


The time has come again to begin recruiting for this year’s Summer Arts Institute String Studio. Please see the following link for general information regarding this wonderful FREE opportunity for students in the 6th through 11th grades.

This is the third year of the SAI string studio and I am very proud to be involved. We are very fortunate to have Charisa Rouse, my co-teacher for the program. Thanks to her, there is a strong focus on non-traditional music with a particular eye on improvisation. There are solo opportunities, chamber music performances and of course, two orchestra performances at the end of the month. Last summer, the program included Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, Bartok’s Rumanian Dances and Sweet Child of Mine of Guns and Roses. This program was performed live streamed on WQXR at The Greene Space at WNYC.

I would be happy to answer any questions you may have or address any concerns. Feel free to be in touch at your convenience. I am including the link to the application that you can share with your students below.

Please note! THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 5, 2016. Please don't delay!
Thank you so much! I look forward to hearing your students audition.
