Follow these simple steps to apply for the Summer Piano Institute:

1. Complete the online Summer Piano Institute Application Form.

2. Obtain a letter of recommendation from your private teacher.

3. Submit an audio recording (CD or DVD) of two pieces of contrasting character and style if you have not attended the institute before, or if you are requesting a partial scholarship.

4. Provide payment of the $25 application fee (nonrefundable), by check or credit card.

Applications will be accepted on a space-available basis. You will be notified whether you have been selected on or around May 1. If you are accepted, you will be billed for the participant fee. We will also send you a participant letter with additional information regarding check-in, health care, items to bring, and transportation from the Ithaca airport and bus station.

If you are accepted and cancel your application by June 1, a full refund, less the $25 application fee, will be given. Cancellations after that date will be considered on an individual basis, and refunds will be prorated.
