Summer Piano Academy

Please note:  this program will open in Summer 2020! The Summer 2019 program is postponed.

Immerse yourself in piano for a week - build memories and skills for a lifetime!


Why choose Summer Piano Academy at Powers?

As a piano student, you're learning, practicing, and performing all on your own. How can you stay motivated, try new things, take risks, and feel supported during the summer?

Imagine one week where you could eat, sleep, and breathe piano. You'll start your mornings with a built-in community of supportive friends, piano students, and teachers who love piano as much as you do. You'll gain experience with different types of piano ensembles and expand your technical skills with piano lab and masterclasses. And you'll work on your own solo repertoire during private lessons, practice time, and performances. (Students enrolled in our MOTH program can practice MOTH repertoire before the program even begins!)

Summer Piano Academy at Powers is the perfect place to:

  • go beyond the practice room and gain new skills and repertoire in piano 4-hand and 2-piano ensembles
  • build confidence and experience performing
  • be encouraged by the expert guidance of our piano teaching artists
  • have an incredible fun week with new friends who speak your musical language
