Division of Music


The Division of Music offers piano and organ study at variable credits. Students can pursue a keyboard major, minor, or concentration, or take lessons as a non-music major. In addition to private lessons, courses are offered in collaborative piano, pedagogy, and literature. Keyboardists can take part in many performance opportunities, including studio recitals, chamber music, collaborations with vocalists and instrumentalists, keyboard duet and duo ensembles, and jazz band. The keyboard area frequently hosts guest performers and masterclass clinicians. Recent guests include Paul Barnes, Alessio Bax, Gabriela Martinez, Jay Mauchley, Nariaki Suguira, and Geraldine Ong.

Ann Nicole Nelson Hall boasts two Steinway D concert grand, a 1932 Kimball organ, Opus 7109, reinstalled in 2004 by the Reuter Organ Company, and a recently acquired concert harpsichord. Organists also have access to a two-rank Reuter practice organ.
