Summer Keyboard Explorations

June 21 — 26, 2021

Summer Keyboard Explorations

offers a week of virtual piano lessons and daily group activities for students from grades 6 through 12. Students enrolling should have a minimum of one year of piano lessons.

Camp Description:

The camp is open to both classical and jazz pianists.

From Monday through Friday students will receive private piano lessons with WSU faculty, and on Saturday we will have a virtual final concert featuring all the participants. Every day we’ll also have a one-hour group activity/class, and an informal social time at the end of the day, so that students will get to meet each other in a fun setting!

We are excited to announce that classical pianists will receive 4 classical lessons (with Dr. Menchetti and Dr. Roh) and one jazz lesson (with Professor Jake Svendsen), so that students will have the opportunity to explore a different genre and discover a different approach to music!

Lessons are open to all participants, so that students will be able to observe each other’s lessons.

Faculty:

Dr. Fabio Menchetti
Dr. Yoon-Wha Roh
Professor Jake Svendsen

Each Day will Include:

  • 30-minute private lesson (from Monday through Friday)
  • 60-minute group activity/class
