Student pianists, both undergraduate and graduate, can enhance their musical skills and experience through master classes, quarterly Piano Showcase concerts, and numerous other opportunities offered by the Department of Music’s Piano Program. Students in the program receive regular coaching sessions with the Director of Piano Studies, and they are invited to participate in master classes with visiting guest artists and local professional pianists as well. Performance opportunities include numerous concerts both on and off campus, many of which focus on a specific composer or historical period.
Undergraduate and graduate student pianists interested in taking advantage of coaching opportunities, playing in master classes, and performing in Department concerts must audition for the Piano Program in order to be included in these activities. Auditions are held at the beginning of the academic year.
Students interested in participating in the Piano Program who have not participated before must complete a remote instrumental audition. Please visit the Auditions page for complete information including audition requirements.
