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

Rating: 5 stars  

Heifetz International Music Institute Artistic Director Daniel Heifetz is truly a visionary. Inside his six-week music intensive are a series of classes that offer young musicians training in public speaking, drama, improvisation and movement.

For the past five summers I have had the pleasure and privilege of teaching the week-long movement component, introducing basic functional anatomy, exploring musicality through movement, connecting thinking and sensing.

The Institute supports interdisciplinary thinking, exploration beyond the practice room and fosters artists in dialogue. Not only is this inspired educating but also setting a model for artists as citizens of the world.
