The Art of the Piano

How to Participate


Participating students and teachers are invited to perform in the recitals.  Submit the name of the piece, along with the composer and an estimate of the playing time on the registration sheet.  The Art of the Piano faculty would also like to encourage piano ensemble playing. Participating students are urged to prepare piano duets or duos for the event in addition to solo repertoire. If you would like assistance in finding a partner or selecting repertoire, please contact Kumiko Shimizu at 846-4122.  Participation in the recitals is optional.

Master classes

Students interested in performing on a master class with the guest artist are invited to apply.  Selection for the master classes will be based on teacher recommendation, repertoire, and available time.


Sessions for students include topics such as sight reading, music theory, rhythm and musicianship, and ensemble playing.

Just for Teachers

The Guest Artist will present a special workshop just for the teachers.  Also, teachers are encouraged to attend the master classes and recitals.
