Bachelor of Music in Piano
The Piano Area at the UI School of Music is vibrant with artist-teachers who are active as soloists, chamber musicians, recording artists, clinicians, authors, and lecturers. Dedicated to a comprehensive and versatile educational approach, the Piano Area offers intensive instruction. The graduate program is among the most substantial in the U.S. and prepares students for rewarding careers in both teaching and in performance. The piano area is known for the personal attention students receive, supporting the individual musical interests of each student within the program of study.
The University of Iowa School of Music and its brand new state-of-the-art Voxman Music Building offers excellent facilities for pianists. We offer one of the best maintained stable of over 90 Steinway grand pianos, extraordinary recital and recording spaces, world-class acoustics, and beautiful rehearsal spaces.
All undergraduate piano majors are exclusively taught by piano professors. Requests for a particular professor are honored when at all possible.
Acceptance to undergraduate performance degree programs in the piano area is dependent upon a successful audition and the approval of the application materials by the Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies. The piano area gives priority for admission and scholarships to B.M. and B.A. candidates whose auditions and applications are completed by the last audition day of a given year.
