Areas of Study

Every summer at PMI is an opportunity to make music, make 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 2020, we enter the second 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.

Save These Dates for 2020:

  • June 7-13, 2020: Summer Jazz Intensive 
  • June 25-July 3, 2020: Solo & String Quartet
  • July 5-July 12, 2020: OLA String Orchestra, OLA Wind Ensemble, and OLA Symphony Orchestra
  • July 13-July 19, 2020: Ukulele Workshop

At PMI, we believe that music is life and our lives are music. We hope you can join us in Honolulu for what will be an epic summer!
