Review for Heifetz International Music Institute Inc, Staunton, VA, USA
The Heifetz International Music Institute was an incredible place to spend 6 weeks learning about music both from a very specific angle, (as a violin student), as well as from a broader perspective (as a human).
I view music, performing, and practicing in a completely different way; the Heifetz Institute allowed us to begin to view music from a much more well-rounded point of view. It allowed us to see how essential music and its sharing are for communities and individuals alike, and to begin to understand how music is integrated within all other fields of study. Because the faculty was such an inspirational and well-rounded source, what I learned at the Heifetz Institute can be applied to my practicing and performances for the rest of my life. The wealth of understanding they were able to share both within their own disciplines and out allowed the entire festival to run with a clear purpose - developing the artistic potential of each of its students.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my practicing and performing, as well as how I view music as a whole. The communication training classes in voice, drama, dance, public speaking and artistic creativity (not offered at the average music festival) have given me so much to think about.

The environment was incredibly supportive - the faculty wanted only the best for ALL of the students. There wasn't any unhealthy competition between any of the participants, either - everyone was supportive of each others' endeavors.
