While the COVID-19 pandemic may have disrupted the way we teach music, we continue to adapt and persevere. It is with that spirit that the Pacific Music Institute announces its summer 2021 program–a hybrid offering of both online lessons and small in-person classes that follow strict health and safety protocols. Ensemble in-person instruction will be held at the spacious Hawaii Convention Center while an online-only option accommodates our mainland and international students who may be unable to travel.
For over 30 years, PMI has defined premiere musical experiences for young musicians. In 2019, the Hawaii Youth Symphony and the National Orchestral + Festival have partnered to create the Orchestral Learning Alliance (OLA). We continue to grow this exciting partnership bringing together some of the world’s brightest and most celebrated artist faculty. Beyond symphonic music, our programs have expanded to include the Summer Jazz Intensive led by Dean Taba, the Solo & String Quartet program led by Iggy Jang, and the Ukulele Workshop led by Jake Shimabukuro.
The universal joy of music connects us all, and there is a place for everyone at PMI. Broaden your musical horizon with us this summer and help keep music a vibrant part of our communities. Have a safe and joyous holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
For students ages 13-19 in the Summer Jazz Intensive, Solo & String Quartet, or Orchestral Learning Alliance programs.
