Enhance your artistry
The Master of Music in instrumental collaborative piano program is highly selective, created for pianists who possess a natural instinct to collaborate and who wish to immerse themselves in the instrumental and chamber repertoire.
This prestigious degree program focuses on developing individual artistry through exposure to all instrumental studios and faculty. Weekly studio classes and semi-public performance forums provide ample performance opportunities for thoughtfully made assignments that address both individual strengths and repertoire deficiencies.
In addition to advanced courses in music theory and history, master’s students have the opportunity to take courses in music entrepreneurship as well as a unique Advanced Collaborative Piano Literature course.
Our small size allows us to create chamber groups for each student, every semester. Each group follows a structured rehearsal schedule with weekly coaching and a required performance. Collaborative pianists also perform in large ensembles and the New Music Festival.
Practicum provides extensive time within all instrumental studios playing lessons, studio classes, master classes and degree recitals. Additionally, two degree recitals, designed by you to reflect your personal interests are required during the degree.
