NU Summer Programs

National High School Summer Institute
An integral part of Northwestern University's acclaimed School of Music, the National High School Music Institute offers an intimate look at collegiate-level music study and music as a career.  With a renowned faculty of more than 100, over 24 performance ensembles, and a myriad of classes, the institute offers an ideally challenging summer to the serious high school musician.

NHSMI is one of seven divisions of Northwestern's National High School Institute, which enrolls approximately 700 of the nation's most accomplished sutdents.  Established in 1931, NHSI is the oldest and largest university-based program of its kind in the nation.

The highly selective music division admits approximately 180 musicians who may choose from eight areas of study.  Applied music receives top priority regardless of the area of concentration, with a special emphasis on chamber music.  Because Northwestern University believes in training well-rounded musicians, students are afforded the opportunity to advance academically with a curriculum of core music studies similar to that of a first-year student in the School of Music.

During five weeks of residency, students perform in nearly 20 concerts, go on musical field trips to all of Chicago's top musical venues, and participate in master classes and seminars related to performance, health in the performing arts, audition preparation, and applying to top music schools.
