The School offers the Diploma in Collaborative Piano Studies. The unique demands of collaborative work with singers and instrumentalists require specialized training for pianists. The program combines repertoire study with a diverse array of courses designed to enhance specific skills in preparation for, or in place of, graduate degree work in collaborative piano.
Enrolment in the program is limited. Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree, normally in piano performance, including several years of experience in collaborative work, in both vocal and chamber music, and with very strong proficiency in sight reading. Qualified candidates will be selected based on audition. Some study of German and of either French or Italian is recommended. Prospective students should inquire at the School for application information.
