Keyboard studies encompasses areas of study related to the organ and piano. Focused study, along with exposure to a range of music literature, superb facilities, private instruction, and many performance opportunities provide students with an enriching educational experience.



Our faculty is comprised of outstanding teacher-performers who are devoted primarily to undergraduate education. These highly skilled musicians maintain rigorous performance schedules yet provide individual instruction and spend generous amounts of time with their students via lessons, coaching, mentoring, and more.
