Collaborative Piano

Collaborate with brilliant artists

When you pursue a graduate program in collaborative piano, you study with world-class faculty and perform with peers who share your passion for collaboration and chamber music.

We strive to provide a positive atmosphere where you are free to pursue all types of partnerships, immersing yourself in your craft and the service aspect of our profession.

No matter which program you choose, you have the opportunity to also choose an area of specialization: Vocal Emphasis, Instrumental Emphasis, or Balanced Track.

Perform with artists who share your passion

Each year, more than 1,100 performances take place at Jacobs—and as a student here, you’ll be a part of them. Whether you play with an established chamber music ensemble or create your own group, you will have ample opportunities to perform in front of live audiences. You could also work as a pianist for hire for people in our community.

Learn more about our ensembles

The diverse experiences I am gaining here at Jacobs have exceeded my expectations. I am constantly learning new repertoire, and my mentors and peers in this program keep me curious and wanting to absorb as much information as I can.
