Instrumental Collaborative Piano

Professional Performance Certificate

Collaborative instruction

The Professional Performance Certificate in Instrumental Collaborative Piano program is highly selective. Pianists who possess a natural instinct to collaborate and who wish to immerse themselves in the instrumental and chamber repertoire develop individual artistry through exposure to all studios and faculty over the course of the degree.

Weekly studio classes and our semi-public performance forums provide ample presentation opportunities for assignments that help address individual strengths and repertoire deficiencies.

Our intimate size allows us to create chamber groups throughout each semester of each student’s degree. Groups follow a structured rehearsal schedule that includes weekly coaching and required performances. Large ensemble performances and participation in the New Music Festival are also possible.

Practicum includes collaborations on instrumental recitals, while the certificate’s cornerstone includes three required recitals that you design to reflect your personal interests and specializations. One of these is a full chamber program which provides the opportunity to perform large scale chamber works.
