Work directly with nationally and internationally-known Ithaca College piano faculty members to hone your craft with daily private and small group lessons, workshops, theory and masterclasses, and supervised practice. Enjoy working alongside other young artists during daily piano ensemble and by participating in a final showcase recital.

You will have the full use of our James J. Whalen Center for Music during your time on campus. When you're not in Whalen, enjoy recreational and social activities, such as a night at the theater, sunny excursions to our local state parks, and movie nights. 

We welcome both residential and commuter students.
