Camp Features

Instruction For All Ability Levels
The FSU Piano Camp provides comprehensive instruction for beginning, intermediate, and advanced players with no audition required. The overall instructional focus of this one-week camp is developing good technique and overall musicianship. This camp also allows for students to practice and play non-classical music genres such as original compositions, movie scores, and popular music.

Please note that this camp is one-week. If you are interested in a longer piano experience we encourage you to consider our Piano Institute.

A Well-Rounded Class Schedule
Students will receive instruction in piano literature, masterclass observation, studio class, and have daily practice time.  Two elective classes are taken each day and students may choose their combination of composition and arranging, world music, and duo piano. See what a sample schedule looks like for this camp.

Performance Opportunities
Camp will conclude with a final performance in Longmire Recital Hall.

Private Lessons
Two private lessons are included.  Private lessons are taught by FSU College of Music Doctoral students.

Evening Activities
Activities are planned for each evening. Attend a faculty concert, go bowling, jump at SkyZone, and more!

Be A Summer Seminole
Spend time on the FSU Campus and experience what it's like to be a Nole.  Learn more about dorm rooms, dining, medical care, and everything in between on our CAMP LIFE page.
