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. NEW this year: Introduction to Collaborative Piano. The ability to accompany other musicians is an indispensable skill. We will spend a couple of class sessions exploring the basic principles of good collaboration: vertical alignment, breathing, score study, and professional practices. We also continue one of our most popular activities, a “Monster Piano Ensemble” event. There will be repertoire for all levels of experience, and it will be posted on our website in March so that campers can begin preparations for participation in this fun and exciting event.



Ample practice time has been scheduled every day, and counselors will be available during practice hours to answer questions and to help with developing practice techniques. Outside of class and practice time, we will have several recreational activities 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.
