The goal of the Piano Institute is to provide a concentrated week of stimulating musical activities within a Christian environment which will motivate and encourage students in their piano studies.
Activities include: Daily lessons, two scheduled practice periods per day, and Ensemble Experience Classes such as Music Appreciation, Music Theory, Piano Literature, Performance, and Improvisation.
The Friday Ensemble Recital features duets and trios learned during the Institute. Students must prepare a memorized piece prior to the Institute and perform that piece during a Saturday Solo Recital. Recitals are located in the carousels and the choir room of the Totino Fine Arts Center.
The Institute is open to serious piano students ages 10–18 who are playing at an intermediate to advanced level (level 5 method book and above). Students will be grouped according to age and ability.
If you are new to the Piano Institute, please submit an audio or video recording of one piece from current repertoire. This audition can be submitted as part of your online application.
