Intermediate/Advanced Piano

July 5-11, 2020

For students completing grades 7–12

Designed for senior high pianists at intermediate and advanced levels of performance. Classes include private lessons, development of individual artistry, and elective classes including: ensemble music, accompanying and beginning jazz improvisation. Recitals, topic classes, and masterclasses complete the curriculum. Practice time is available on grand pianos in state-of-the-art facilities.

Audition requirements

On the first day, students play two contrasting, memorized pieces and sight-read easier short excerpts. This helps determine placement in lessons and classes.  Though the audition requirements are the same for all piano programs, repertoire is chosen based on the student's ability and level of advancement.
