Piano Camp

The University of Montana Piano Camp – June 23-29, 2013
Pianists who have completed grades 7 through 12 are welcome to attend UM Piano Camp June 23-29, 2013 in Missoula.  The University of Montana Piano Camp has a long history of being a favorite event for young pianists eager to improve their musicianship and performing skills. The days are filled with partner lessons, piano team rehearsals, practice sessions, master classes, and a variety of special interest sessions. Evenings will include several wonderful faculty/staff and student recitals, and our counselors have designed recreational activities to round out this memorable week.
As always, the UM Piano Camp offers students the opportunity to study and work closely with a distinguished faculty of pianists and musicians.  In addition to UM piano professors Steven Hesla and Christopher Hahn, we will feature visiting faculty Margery Whatley and Dorothy Peterson, and composer/singer Lee Heuermann will help us with sessions in improvisation.
