Classical studio piano and organ are the primary areas of study. Primary small groups meet daily. Secondary options meet twice a week and offer small group classes in organ, ensemble piano, and piano improvisation.
Primary Organ: Students interested in studying organ as their primary instrument should bring at least two substantial performance-ready works to study and play on recital during the week, as well as two contrasting hymns for study in lessons.
Come Prepared to Perform
Students should bring two performance-ready works for master class / recital and two additional works (in progress) for further piano study during the week. Master class performance is encouraged but not required.
If you are interested in studying organ as a secondary or in private lessons:
- Prepare 2 hymns or brief solo organ works prior to arrival. Your sessions / lessons will cover the fundamentals of organ and service playing.
- Bring appropriate shoes to properly play the pedals. Organ shoes are essentially tap dance shoes or capezios without taps. Leather heels and soles are more appropriate than rubber. If students do not own organ-specific shoes, the best substitute is a snug-fitting loafer with normal heel. No sandals, flip-flops or high heels. Most organists change into their shoes when time to play, so bring a bag to transport the shoes to and from lessons if you do not wish to wear them all day.
Each day students participate in a musicianship class, master class, primary area small group lesson, practice time, and social events. Secondary area small group lessons take place twice during the week. Private lessons are scheduled within this framework.
