Activities will focus on intensive piano study with daily private lessons, performance classes, and classes in music theory and piano literature. Class topics will be devoted to a diverse selection of activities including stage deportment, life as a college music major and ensemble playing. Two evening sessions will be devoted to one of our most popular activities, a “monster piano ensemble” event. One evening will be an instructional activity on how to play in any chamber ensemble and the second will be devoted to reading through our selected repertoire. Piano ensemble repertoire for all levels of experience will be posted on www.UCMmusic.com/piano_institute in March so campers can begin preparations for participation in this fun and exciting event.
Ample practice time has been scheduled each day, and counselors will be available during practice hours to answer questions and help with developing practice techniques. Outside of class and practice time, several recreational activities will be offered at various Warrensburg parks. Family and friends are welcome to attend the Friday afternoon Honors Recital in Hart Recital Hall, which will conclude the institute.
A fee of $420 includes five nights lodging in one of the university’s modern, air-conditioned residence halls, meals from Sunday through Friday and all planned recreational activities.
