Students may choose piano as the applied major in conjunction with any of the three music degrees offered at SDSU.
Piano may also be taken as a music minor, in order to fulfill keyboard proficiency graduation requirements. Piano lessons are with artist teachers who are active as performers, clinicians and adjudicators throughout the region.
Pianists have many opportunities to perform and grow musically, including weekly forums, concerto competition, accompanying soloists and choral groups, junior and senior recitals, jazz bands and studio recital projects.
