"Boston Music Institute has given me amazing opportunities to grow as a musician through coaching by great conservatory professionals. It is such an honor as well as a musical pleasure for me to share a stage with them and other music students based in Boston."
Sho Yamasaki (Pianist, student in a dual degree program of Harvard /MIT)
"I had such a wonderful time performing at BMI. They have an incredible coaching staff and the students play well beyond their years. I recommend BMI to any student who wants to grow as a chamber musician."
Dane Jacobson (Princeton University, Computer Sciences, and Quantitative Biology, Violinist)
"My experience with the Boston Music Institute was transformative. I had the rare opportunity to be coached by two outstanding professional musicians and then perform with them the first movement of the Mendelssohn Piano Trio No. 1. Honestly, I was never particularly interested in playing chamber music, but this experience completely changed my mind! Thank you, BMI."
Hayden Idson (Cellist, Winner, Concerto Competition of the Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra and Wellesley Symphony Orchestra)
"BMI gave me the opportunity to not only grow as a musician but also to truly gain skills such as leadership and collaboration, which are important in life, outside of music, as well. Not only did this program give me very strong motivation to bring my skills to the next level but it also reminded me that I could find joy in playing the violin, and producing beautiful music with other great musicians."
Julie Koo (Concertmaster at Brookline High School)
