Peabody Summer Institute
Sunday, July 26 - Saturday, August 1, 2020

Online Campus
This year Peabody Preparatory is thrilled to announce the creation of the Peabody Summer Institute. This new initiative will combine three of our highly successful summer institutes (Beyond Technique Dance Intensive, Summer Guitar Intensive, and Peabody Piano Week) into one large summer learning experience. Students will have the opportunity to spend their week focusing on their major area of study but also have an opportunity to share and learn from their fellow student and faculty. Participants will engage in instrument/dance-specific activities as well as benefit from exposure to a larger program of combined master classes, recitals, and concerts. Students interested dance, guitar, and piano have the opportunity to learn and engage in an inclusive artistic environment to refine their skills with expert instructors, performers, and coaches.

Beyond Technique Dance Intensive

For students ages 14-20.

In partnership with Peabody Conservatory’s new BFA Dance program, this one-week intensive is designed to enhance your current training in ballet and modern dance dance in preparation for the upcoming academic year.

Peabody Piano Week

For students from junior high through college age.

An intensive week-long festival for piano students. Participating students will study with a member of the faculty, attend and perform in master classes, and a “Musicianship for Pianists” course. Our 2020 festival will be hosted completely online and run through the ZOOM platform.

Summer Guitar Intensive

For students ages 9 to adult.

A one-week online-only program that provides guitarists of all abilities the opportunity to study with a world-class faculty at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. The Summer Guitar Intensive is designed to support the beginning guitarist, adult guitarists of all ages and abilities, and the most advanced young pre-professional guitarists in training.
