For students completing grades 7–11
Designed for advanced junior high and senior high pianists at intermediate 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 in the same state-of-the-art facilities used by piano majors at the University.
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.
