Performance - Piano

The Piano program prepares students who aspire to be professional performers in solo or group settings, collaborative pianists, studio instructors, and other professions in the music field. Performance students are given extensive opportunities to perform on stage each semester of their program as they develop their technique, expression, and overall musicality across a wide range of repertoire through intensive studio and small group instruction.

  • Program-Specific Course and Non-Course Requirements by Year: 

Specific requirements for technical exams, final juries, studio and solo recitals, and 10-minute concerts for piano students can be found in the Repertoire Requirements document. Pre-screening and live audition requirements can be found on the Admissions page on the school website. In addition to the core curriculum, piano students have the following requirements: 

  • Accompaniment & Studio Accompanying

    • Pianists will not only develop their skills as soloists but as accompanists as well. Students will take four terms of accompaniment lessons during Years 1 and 2 while accompanying a minimum of 3 students of other programs each term.

    • In Years 3 and 4, students will continue to accompany both vocalists and instrumental students through the Studio Accompanying course. 

  • Chamber & Chamber Concert

    • Students will enroll in Chamber for four terms of their program to fulfill their ensemble requirement during Years 2 and 3. 

    • The Chamber Concert is held at the end of each term for the public, and all chamber groups must participate as a part of their Chamber course participation grade. 

  • Keyboard Harmony 

    • In Years 2 and 3, piano students begin a four-term Keyboard Harmony course sequence to develop their musicianship skills at the keyboard, including score-reading, clef-reading, transposition, and figured bass.
