EMF's Piano Program is an intensive study with the Festival's resident faculty and visiting artists. Young artists work on repertoire already in progress and new repertoire, improving technique and musicianship. Participants have ready access to pianos for daily practice and rehearsals.
Each summer, pianists participate in a master classes led by faculty and featured artists.
Students participate in weekly performance classes led by piano faculty. The small-group settings offers a supportive atmosphere for the development of performance skills.
Literature Classes & Seminars
Faculty led piano literature classes and seminars focus on topics such as musical styles of various eras, historic recordings, technique, memorization, overcoming stage fright, and building a recital program.
Chamber Music & Ensembles
Students may be assigned to chamber music groups, orchestral parts and piano ensemble study, or they may be selected to accompany other instrumentalists in sonata literature. All assignments are made at the discretion of the piano faculty.
Chamber ensembles rehearse 3-4 times a week. Two of the weekly rehearsals are coached by EMF’s faculty artists. Student chamber ensembles are often invited to perform on the Young Artists Chamber Music Recital Series.
