The Iceberg Chamber Music Institute…

The Iceberg Chamber Music Institute (ICMI) is a summer institute designed for advanced young string students (violin, viola and cello) and pianists presented by the Suzuki Talent Education Program (STEP) of St. John’s, Newfoundland.   ICMI offers a rewarding week of music learning and development, as well as social and cultural experience to young musicians both local and visiting from other provinces or countries.

ICMI is held annually in early summer, concurrently with the Newfoundland Suzuki Institute (NLSI), which is for Suzuki students in books 0-5.


Pianists: you can be part of the ICMI experience too! Spend your days in lessons, chamber groups, and having musical fun with friends. You need to be twelve or older, and at RCM level 8, to join your peers in this advanced program. (Below this level, choose one of the “Piano Experience” courses at NLSI.) Deadline the same: May 5th.

 In Beautiful St. John’s, NL…

ICMI is held in St. John’s, the most easterly city in North America with unique history, geography and culture.  ICMI students will learn and benefit from the instruction of highly skilled and experienced faculty from St. John’s, other parts of Canada and the United States.  As well, Memorial University of Newfoundland is located in St. John’s and boasts a thriving music school with internationally recognized string faculty.

Students age 12+ travelling from other Canadian provinces or abroad may request to be billeted by a local STEP family if they are not able to be accompanied by parents.  Where possible, small families may also be accommodated to attend ICMI.  For families travelling, there are many accommodations within a short distance of ICMI’s location.  There are also university campus accommodations available within 1 km.
