Camp Features

Instruction For Advanced Students
The FSU Piano Institute provides comprehensive instruction for advanced players who are looking to continue their keyboard studies over the summer. The instructional focus of the Piano Institute is on building technique, refining interpretation, and preparing for performances. 

Rigorous Class Schedule 
Students will receive instruction in music theory, musicianship, piano literature, and daily masterclasses.  

Private Lessons
Students will receive 4 private lessons - one per day, Monday through Thursday - and have ample time for individual practice in a private practice room.

Performance
The Institute will conclude with a final performance by all students.  Each camper will be limited to 2 audience tickets per camper, per event, due to hall capacity restrictions.  Campers will receive their performance tickets at check-in.

Evening Activities

The week is filled with fun and challenging music and social activities. Activities are planned for each evening and will include movie nights, faculty and staff recitals, ice cream socials, sports, and more.  A full recreation schedule will be provided before camp begins.
