Director's Message

Welcome to the Pianist Program page! Here you will find important information on our conservatory’s mission, curriculum, faculty, and more. OCSA’s incredible arts conservatories provide comprehensive learning experiences that allow for unique artistic growth in a nurturing and enriching environment. Our staff and faculty work hard to create programs that exceed expectations so that each student is given the tools necessary to excel in their area of study. We hope this page gives you a glimpse into what our program has to offer! 

Our Mission

The Pianist Program augments the training of students in 7th through 12th grades, whose goals include a performing or academic career. In addition to the instrumental music theory, history, and the musical elective curriculum, the Pianist Program offers classes in solo performance training, piano skills and style topics, score and sight-reading, piano ensemble, and chamber music. 

Meet Our faculty

Our faculty is comprised of working professionals with a variety of backgrounds and training, and the majority hold advanced degrees in their specialties.

Curriculum

The entire curriculum of the Pianist Program is modeled after a college curriculum, and as such, students undergo vigorous preparation for college admission and auditions. The repertoire being studied reflects the requirements of National Association of Schools of Music. By the time the Pianist Program students graduate, they will have acquired all the skills necessary for success at a university or arts conservatory program. Weekly masterclasses are designed to hone performance skills, and the numerous performance opportunities students are given further equip them with the confidence to tackle any audition.
