How to Apply
Students are strongly encouraged to apply early rather than waiting until the final deadline nears. Applicants who need an early decision due to an invitation from another program should contact the Director. An early acceptance from the Piano Academy is usually possible if admission is certain.
The program is open to serious young pianists ages 12 – 19. Exceptionally, advanced students younger than 12 may be admitted by special permission of the Director. Applicants should submit the following:
- List of repertoire studied during the past 2 years, indicating which pieces have been memorized or performed in recital.
- Unedited YouTube recording (highly preferred) or unedited CD/DVD of two pieces of contrasting character and style. If you attended the Piano Academy in 2019, an audition recording is not required unless explicitly requested by the Directors.
- Principle teacher’s recommendation
Send audition materials only to firstname.lastname@example.org (cc’ email@example.com) or
