Secondary study in piano
Festival participants may elect to take supplemental lessons on piano during the festival. Supplemental lessons are offered in 30-minute slots, once a week. While no additional audition is required, we do expect that students who register for secondary piano lessons will possess basic skills and have at least one year of prior private instruction.
