Carnegie Mellon University Launches Collaborative Piano Program

Update 1/1/2024: Rodrigo Ojeda, Director of Instrumental Collaborative Piano at CMU, has sent along an updated link for Carnegie Mellon's Collaborative Piano programs and faculty. The current faculty:
  • Mark Carver
  • Dr. Jocelyn Dueck
  • Sung-In Kim
  • Luz Manriquez
  • Rodrigo Ojeda
  • Ellen Risinger
About the program:
The Collaborative Piano curriculum gives specialized training to pianists pursuing a career working with vocalists and instrumentalists, providing the necessary skills and artistry required for a growing and vital field. Graduating collaborative pianists will never be without work, and CMU’s degree program gives students the tools and practical experience for their careers in the field of music. Graduating students will be prepared for work as recitalists, chamber musicians, orchestra pianists, continuo players, répétiteurs, coaches, music directors, lyric diction coaches, conductors and instructors.

I've just received word that Carnegie Mellon University will be offering a degree program in Collaborative Piano. The only information I could find so far was the following information on the School of Music's Admissions and Auditions page:
The School of Music is introducing the Masters in Collaborative Piano program in the Fall of 2010. Applicants to this program will be expected to demonstrate accompanying skills with both instrumentalists and with vocalists at the time of the audition. Please be sure to refer to the "Audition" section of this website for detailed instructions, requirements, and guidelines for the application and audition processes.
