Student Schedulec

We recommend focusing your time and energy on institute for the week. Commuting students will be tired after a day of classes; to fully benefit from the institute experience, they should not be rushing off to sports practice or other activities in the evening.

Institute begins on Tuesday for students (see table above) with a special morning schedule and regular classes in the afternoon.

Wednesday is the first full day with morning classes held at 9 and 10 am.

Honors Recitals are held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, followed by lunch. Afternoon classes resume at 1 pm.  Most classes are finished by 4 pm with the exception of chamber music which ends at 5 pm for enrichment groups and at 5:30 pm for Young Artist groups.

Students have regular classes on Saturday morning at 9 am and 10 am.

There will be informal student recitals at 11 am on Saturday morning as well as a chamber music concert. Students in chamber music should not expect to perform in the informal recitals. The final concert will begin Saturday afternoon at 1 pm, and everything will be wrapped up by 4:00 pm (if not sooner!).


Teacher Workshop Schedule

This year, each teacher workshop has its own schedule. Please see the page for each course for a tentative schedule. We will keep you updated as institute approaches, or please feel free to email with specific schedule questions.

All teacher workshop participants should plan to attend the SAA Focus Group on Monday at 5 pm. 

Some teacher workshop class hours will be finished Friday. If you have completed all observations, you are free to go. If not, there are regular student classes on Saturday morning at 9 and 10 am. You are welcome to attend Saturday concerts and help with tuning!
