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

Downtown 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 masterclasses, 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
