Institute Preparation

How To Prepare for Master and Repertoire Classes


Prepare a memorized, polished piece to work on in your master class. Please choose and prepare this piece with your teacher before the Institute begins. 


Prepare for repertoire classes by reviewing the suggested repertoire review list for each instrument below.  This is a suggested guide - students should review the entire repertoire through their current working piece. The pieces chosen for each repertoire class will vary depending on the levels of the students attending the institute.  All repertoire for the final concert will be determined and worked on in group classes at the institute.  

Note: The class teacher may choose to revise this list at the Institute according to the particulars of each group.
