Student Schedule

We recommend focusing your time and energy on institute for the week. Students will be tired after a day of classes; to fully benefit from the institute experience, clear their schedules so they are not rushing off to sports practice or taxing activities in the evening.

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

8 – 10:45 am Packet pick-up and dorm check-in at Emerson Hall lobby

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, with the notable exception that there is no Dalcroze Saturday morning.

There will be informal student recitals at 11 am on Saturday morning as well as two chamber music performances. 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!).
