Auditions are 10 minutes in length, and consist of the performance from memory of two contrasting pieces at the level of any Beethoven sonata (except Op. 49), and sight reading. If you want to begin piano study in winter or spring quarter rather than this fall, it’s best to inform us now and audition if you can: space is limited. If class attendance precludes your signing up for a piano audition during our available hours, email any piano faculty member by Thursday, September 28:
George Barth: email@example.comLaura Dahl: firstname.lastname@example.orgThomas Schultz: email@example.comFrederick Weldy: firstname.lastname@example.orgKumaran Arul: email@example.com
In addition to an hour a week of private instruction, each pianist admitted to the studios participates in a weekly studio class at a time arranged by individual instructor.
