What you will learn

Participants will explore a broad range of techniques and repertoire alongside their peers through a daily regimen of interactive workshops, guided and collaborative practice, music theory, private lessons, and master classes. The symposium will feature concerts by Bloomingdale faculty, and will culminate in a student concert open to all participants.

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS

Faculty will lead workshops exploring diverse musical genres, playing techniques, and historical performance practice where participants will participate in discussion and practical application of musical concepts on the piano.

MASTERCLASSES

Each participant will take part in an intensive masterclass with a member of the faculty, an invaluable experience that combines live instruction and coaching with the experience of performing in front of an audience.

MUSIC THEORY

Participants will expand their knowledge of the building blocks of music through dedicated theory sessions with an eye toward practical application on the keyboard.

PRIVATE LESSONS

Every participant will receive a dedicated private lesson with one of Bloomingdale’s piano faculty.

FACULTY & STUDENT CONCERTS
