Review for Heifetz International Music Institute Inc, Staunton, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Heifetz International Music Institute is one of the greatest summer festivals I have ever attended. However, it really isn't just a summer festival. The concepts and ideas taught at Heifetz impact your playing for the rest of your life. Not a day goes by where my practicing does not include many of the techniques I learned from Heifetz. Also, the size creates an environment of nurturing and community. I believe nothing is more important than a community-focused situation when it comes to music. Every single teacher had this vision. It was as if all the teachers and their students were in harmony (pun intended). I was blown away by the professionalism and order that was within every facet of the camp.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My everyday performances and practicing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Let more students perform, and less of the same "virtuosi."
