Areas of Study


Every summer at PMI is an opportunity to make music, friends, and develop skills that will extend far beyond the rehearsal room or concert hall.

A PMI summer includes a comprehensive music curriculum—sectionals, rehearsals, master classes, private lessons, performances, and more. In Summer 2021, we enter the third year of our OLA (Orchestral Learning Alliance) program, featuring Artist Faculty and Teaching Fellows from the National Orchestral Institute+Festival.

PMI has programs for all instruments that play in a symphony orchestra, symphonic band, or jazz ensemble. Our programs range in duration from five days to two weeks. Depending on your area of study and audition, you may be eligible for more than one program, and students may apply for more than one program with the same audition.
