Piano study at the University of Missouri offers many opportunities for the undergraduate or graduate major.  Those who are accepted into a Piano Performance program will emphasize repertoire, technique, and performance; those in the Bachelor of Arts and the Music Minor programs have a broader liberal arts emphasis.  Students in the Music Education programs also study performance, as well as pedagogical training for piano teachers.  In addition to the core curriculum in the School of Music, piano students have opportunities to study Piano Pedagogy, Piano Repertory, Collaborative Piano, and Chamber Music, as well as to meet weekly in piano performance classes in Whitmore Recital Hall. We offer dedicated practice rooms for piano majors. The piano area also offers a wide range of performance experiences on historical instruments including a fortepiano (ca. 1800 Walter reproduction), two harpsichords, and the opportunity to perform a complete concerto with the University Philharmonic Orchestra.
