Collaborative Piano

Choose your area of specialization

The goal of the Jacobs Collaborative Piano Department, codirected by Anne Epperson and Kevin Murphy, is to coordinate the activities of our majors with the needs of the various departments within the rest of the school.

This dynamic fosters a positive atmosphere in all types of partnerships and reinforces the service aspect of our profession. At the Jacobs School of Music, students acquire one of the country’s premier experiences in all aspects of a collaborative education.

Unique to the program at Jacobs is the opportunity to choose an area of specialization: Vocal Emphasis, Instrumental Emphasis, or Balanced Track.

Study with world-class faculty

Our faculty are internationally recognized artists who have performed all over the world. Now, they’ve chosen to turn their talents to teaching the next generation of collaborative pianists and work to provide you with myriad opportunities to learn and thrive in a positive environment.

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.
