Summer Keyboard Explorations

For the 28th consecutive year, middle school and high school students can work with award-winning Washington State University faculty to study classical piano, jazz piano/improvisation, and organ. With a limited number of students, Summer Keyboard Explorations offers students the opportunity to work with different faculty one-on-one each day, thus sending them home at week’s end with a variety of information and different views about how they can improve their playing. In addition to a faculty concert, SKE features a guest artist who will perform a concert and give a master class to the students. The week’s events culminate in a student concert that includes ensemble playing, a highlight of many student’s experience at SKE!
