The Adult Piano Camp is an exciting three-day experience for adult pianists to explore the many facets of piano playing in a supportive, fun atmosphere that promotes a positive attitude towards practising and performing. Students are coached in prepared solo repertoire and new ensemble pieces. There are classes in musical style, interpretation, memorization, technique and performance anxiety.


“One of the best parts of the camp was being together with other adults who share this crazy passion of ours to play the piano! 

- Robin Harrison (1932-2013), clinician 2005



The Value of Adult Piano Camp

"I learned so much from the camp. I literally feel like I got 3 months’ worth of practicing during those 3 days of camp! It was AMAZING. I wish I could do something like this every month.

- Eric Klaszus, 2017 Participant
