Collaborative Piano Studies at Arizona State University

The School of Music in the Herberger College of the Arts at Arizona State University offers several degrees in collaborative piano, including Bachelor of Music, Master of Music, and Doctor of Musical Arts programs. Arizona State University was one of the first universities to offer degrees in this field. From the ASU Collaborative Piano page:
Collaboration at the School of Music means having an impact in all performance areas, including duo recitals with instrumental and voice colleagues, performances of the great chamber music literature on our Showcase series, work as rehearsal and pit pianists for the Lyric Opera Theater, and concerts with the large ensembles and choirs.

Classes in Art Song and Chamber Music literature, along with seminar classes exploring a variety of advanced topics such as lyric diction, vocal chamber music, Baroque and Bel Canto ornamentation, and orchestration at the piano enhance the performance aspects of the curriculum.

In addition to the wide variety of performance opportunities on campus, the collaborative piano program is dedicated to making an impact in the community. The faculty and students of the program collaborate with virtually every important artistic organization in the greater Phoenix area, including the Phoenix Symphony, the Arizona Opera, the Phoenix Bach Choir, the Phoenix Boys Choir, the Phoenix Chamber Music society, the Phoenix Early Music Society and several community colleges.

For more information, contact the ASU School of Music.

This posting is part of a project to create links for all known Degree Programs in Collaborative Piano. If you know of a degree program that isn't on the main list, please email me info and web documentation and I would be glad to add it to the listings.
