“I have attended the SMI for fouryears now, and every year I am surprised by the level of musicianship, not just of the world-class faculty but also of the other students. A program like this … can’t help but attract top talent, but every year the SMI seems to reach new and greater heights. Most people would agree that you learn more in these three weeks than at any other time of the year (if not the whole rest of the year combined)!”
