The Heifetz Institute was founded by Founder & Artistic Director Daniel Heifetz upon the revolutionary educational concept that young musicians can be taught to communicate the emotion of music, beyond mere technical agility and beautiful playing. Thus, in addition to the intensity (and fun!) of the overall program, each HeifetzPEG student will participate in a series of 45-minute-per-day classes in the following areas, in custom-tailored modules taught by veteran actors, dancers, opera singers, pop and blues musicians, entertainment, exercise and healthcare professionals.
