The undergraduate and graduate keyboard programs are designed for those who wish to develop their performing skills within a multi-faceted School of Music. Students acquire a comprehensive knowledge of their instruments' classical literature through study, coursework, and participation in the rich concert life of the Twin Cities. 

Chamber music, accompanying, and collaborative efforts are a high priority with the piano faculty. Supporting this philosophy is the graduate program in accompanying/coaching, established in 1992.
