The Performing Arts Institute of Wyoming Seminary offers a summer music program for students of elementary- and middle-school age for instrumental and voice students.
Many instrumental students in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 are looking for a summer experience that allows them to improve their musical skills in a fun, upbeat atmosphere. The Junior Division of the Performing Arts Institute (PAI) is just the environment to cultivate their talents and to meet friends who enjoy music as much as they do. Open to string, woodwind, brass, percussion and piano players, the PAI Junior Division is designed to inspire young musicians to make the leap into a lifetime of musicmaking. A positive summer experience is often exactly what it takes to motivate students to practice and to become leaders in their own school music programs.
Junior PAI is comprehensive, including basic musicianship, instrumental ensembles, chorus, music classes, performances and recitals. Music classes allow students to acquire fundamentals in music; instrumental ensembles provide young musicians with a challenging ensemble experience; and Institute Chorus enables students to sing side by side with the "senior" PAI students while developing their sight-singing skills. At the close of each day, all students and faculty meet for "Grab Bag" which allows everyone the chance to explore widely varied topics such as improvisation, music technology, and performance poise.
Special notes: Location is at the Wyoming Seminary Upper School in Kingston. Students may bring their own lunch or purchase lunch in the cafeteria. Students must have studied their instrument at least two years.
