"All which is not given is lost ...

Thus, as years go by, the process of teaching and sharing becomes increasingly important. We proudly invite you to join us for what will be a time to learn, a time to expand your understanding, a time for transformation."



We believe that… the ability to play not merely to pay…is a compelling concept of PianoSummer.

Announcing that PianoSummer’s commitment to this belief continues with the acceptance of gifted students who will live, learn and perform on our campus without charge for tuition and housing.
