The 2018 Chautauqua Piano Program will expose young musicians to a variety of approaches to music-making and to creating a life in music. Alexander Gavrylyuk, Nicola Melville, and John Milbauer will provide weekly lesson and class structure for all students, while an impressive array of guest faculty artists will bring fresh and diverse perspectives each week.

Performances: our piano faculty will present an exciting series of recitals and concerto performances throughout the five-week festival. 

Master classes: opportunities every week for pianists to perform for piano faculty, fellow students, and members of the public.

Performance classes: more formal weekly classes that provide recital performance experience.

Q&As: extended conversations on a wide range of topics with our guest faculty.

Private Lessons: All students will have regular lessons with our resident faculty, and most of our guest faculty will also be teaching private lessons during their residencies. Opportunities for lessons with guests will be distributed evenly among students throughout the summer.

In addition to these experiences in the Piano Department, there are solo and chamber music student recitals scheduled throughout the Chautauqua Music Festival by the School of Music. We are certain that all our piano students will be engaged and satisfied by the wealth and breadth of opportunities for inspiration and growth. There is no other program like Chautauqua Piano 2018.

 

"The unique atmosphere of CHQ, the great working facilities, the opportunity to study under the guidance of different teachers, the possibility to perform and the amazing feast of performances and conferences one can attend (thanks to the CHQ Festival) makes it now one of the best summer programs to learn and grow for serious students of all levels.
