Session II:  July 16 - 30
COST: $3,400

The Piano Program is an intensive, two-week course that offers young pianists an opportunity to work with highly accomplished teachers, perform on a world-class stage, and attend inspiring concerts by guest performers. Through one-on-one lessons, group masterclasses, and lectures, students will refine their technique, expand their musical repertoire, and discuss common questions facing young pianists who want to take their craft to the next level: the best repertoire for an audition or competition, healthy practice routines, and building a portfolio for colleges and conservatories.

A vibrant concert series is the culminating experience of Hotchkiss Piano Portals. Guest artist concerts are performed by the world-class faculty, while students perform in several Young Artists Concerts, held at the stunning Katherine Elfers Hall.

In addition to the performance opportunities on campus, the Hotchkiss Piano Program will bring a group of young pianists for a New York debut recital*. Students will be selected through an audition process held during the first week of the program.

(*Pending confirmation due to COVID-19 scheduling challenges.)
