Piano offers degree tracks in composition, performance, music education and the bachelor of arts in music. Regardless of degree focus, all students receive private lessons with faculty members.
Classes are conducted through private lessons, master classes and keyboard literature courses. Performance classes, coached and critiqued by the entire piano faculty, are modeled similarly to master classes and provide regular performance opportunities.
Undergraduate students take an accompanying class, which enables them to work as collaborative artists with other musicians. All students gain performance experience through recitals and can take part in chamber music ensembles.
