  • Saxophone
  • Trumpet
  • Horn
  • Trombone
  • Euphonium
  • Tuba
  • Percussion (players should have experience on at least two of the following: timpani, snare drum or mallet percussion)


Join our intensive weeklong program to:

  • Polish your technique in private lessons with expert faculty.
  • Improve your musicianship playing in chamber groups.
  • Expand your musical knowledge through master classes and nightly seminars.
  • Meet and practice with other talented students who share your passion for music.

The institute is a great musical experience regardless of your future academic plans!

New in 2024: Wind & Percussion Solo Competition

Institute registrants interested in participating in the competition should prepare a selection of intermediate to advanced level. A winner will be chosen through an audition process during the Institute. The winner will be featured in a public performance at the end of the week.

“I have gained experiences and friends that will last forever. The influence from the prestige of this music program can only progress with future years to come!”
