The founder, violinist Daniel Heifetz, has played with many world-renowned orchestras and has taught master classes as well as university courses. As a young musician, Heifetz was mentored by legendary names such as Henryk Szyerng, Efrem Zimbalist, Jascha Brodsky, and Ivan Galamian.In 1996, Heifetz started the Heifetz Music Institute in an effort to draw in talented young musicians of violin, viola, and cello from all over the world.

The Institute is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and can be supported through various giving opportunities.  Its daily operations are led by Daniel Heifetz, but it is also guided by an advisory board whose members include local Maryland businessman Fuad el-Hibri.
