The Professional Performance Certificate in instrumental collaborative piano program is highly selective. Pianists who possess a natural instinct to collaborate and who wish to immerse themselves in the instrumental and chamber repertoire develop individual artistry through exposure to all studios and faculty over the course of the degree.
The well-balanced performance curriculum is divided equally between Practicum, chamber music and individual work in applied lessons. Projects assigned through Practicum provide extensive time within all instrumental studios playing lessons, studio classes, master classes and degree recitals. Weekly studio class and Seminar in Collaborative Arts address vocal, orchestral piano and business skills, while individual degree recitals allow pianists to present programs featuring repertoire of their own choosing.
Practicum includes collaborations on instrumental recitals, while the certificate’s cornerstone includes three required recitals that you design to reflect your personal interests and specializations. One of these is a full chamber program which provides the opportunity to perform large scale chamber works.
All students accepted into the Conservatory of Music attend Lynn tuition-free.
