A degree in Piano

The piano program in the ASU School of Music is designed to nurture the musical interests of each individual student, while developing a keen sense of style and skills needed to create performances at the highest level. The ASU Herberger Institute School of Music keyboard faculty have international reputations as pianists, recording artists and teachers, and are committed to helping students through weekly lessons, studio and repertoire classes, guest master classes and other performance and listening opportunities. Additionally, the School of Music is home to the Bösendorfer and Yamaha USASU International Piano competitions held every two years and has brought world renowned artists such as Martha Argerich, Sergei Babayan and many others to the ASU campus.

ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts School of Music represents one of the most attractive and exciting places for intensive study of keyboard instruments today. This phenomenon is created by the combination of outstanding faculty, talented students, unusual facilities, a special university and the surrounding city. Students can choose between majoring in piano performance, collaborative piano and piano performance and pedagogy.

The School of Music presents more than 700 concerts and recitals each year, so you experience an atmosphere of constant listening and performing opportunities on campus. The metropolitan area offers additional opportunities. Music’s curriculum is enhanced by participating in Arizona State University’s academic model, and by the university’s manifold elective course offerings. Finally, another important consideration is the fact that any keyboard degree from ASU prepares the graduate for multiple career possibilities.
