Become the best musician you can!

Play your part in Hawaii’s favorite summer music camp

For over 30 years, the Pacific Music Institute has been the defining musical experience for Hawaii’s aspiring young musicians. Join this legacy by attending one or more programs being held this summer. Whether you play a string, band, or jazz instrument, HYS has an opportunity for you.

Make Lifelong Friends

Nearly 200 students from across the Hawaiian Islands, Pacific Rim, U.S. Mainland, and Asia participate in PMI each summer. Getting to know other youth who love music as much as you is the surest way to make great music and lifelong friendships.

Become Your Best

At HYS, our sole mission is to develop youth to their fullest potential, through orchestral music. As a PMI student, you join the Hawaii Youth Symphony ohana, an inclusive musical family where music is life and our lives are music.

From your peers, to our rich roster of faculty and teaching fellows, and our outstanding administrative team, your experience at PMI will be a defining moment in your musical career. You’ll be mentored by faculty who teach in world-class colleges and conservatory music programs, have the opportunity to learn about musical life beyond high school, and attend outstanding performances by industry-leading professional musicians.
