Piano students at Arkansas State enjoy many opportunities to perform and gain practical experience, so they can become well-rounded musicians and teachers.  There are weekly Studio Classes, master classes with renowned guest artists, chamber music, jazz, and organ.  We have piano pedagogy classes and lectures, an MTNA Collegiate Chapter, and opportunities to attend local, state, regional, national, and international conferences and festivals.  Students collaborate with vocalists. instrumentalists, and choirs.  Collaborative performances are treated the same as solo performances, with piano faculty and other non-piano faculty members offering insights and suggestions.  There are excellent performance instruments in both the Recital Hall and Riceland Hall, the latter of which has two Steinway D Pianos.  Students also have the opportunity to collaborate with esteemed piano faculty members.
