Welcome to the UNT Summer String Institute!
We are excited to welcome you to our third season of the UNT Summer String Institute.  Students are free to choose one or come for both sessions. Private lessons, chamber music, string orchestra, clinics, masterclasses, and concerts will be the focus of an intense workshop for violinists, violists, and cellists. Our internationally acclaimed UNT string faculty, principal players of the Dallas Symphony, and esteemed guest artists will share their ample experience and expertise with our students. All this in the wonderful environment of the UNT College of Music with its great facilities in the the heart of North Texas and the Dallas-Fort Worth-Metroplex. 

We look forward to seeing you at UNT in June 2016.

Best wishes, 
Felix Olschofa, Director


We  provide an exclusive lesson setting that is tailored to the individual needs of each student. Compared to other summer camps, we offer a truly unique experience: three private lessons in six days our participants will benefit from an intense and nurturing learning environment. In addition to private lessons,  chamber music and orchestra experience will provide a platform for students to communicate with each other through music as the universal language. Pre-college and collegiate sessions are being offered to all age. These include master classes, clinics, faculty-student recitals, mock auditions, wellness and stress reduction sessions, and Regional and All-state audition preparation.
Low tuition and housing expenses make our institute affordable to everyone. Meal plans for commuters are available as well. All events are on UNT campus and within a five-minute walk to the dormitories and cafeterias.
Join us for a truly wonderful and enriching musical experience on UNT campus.
