UNCSA SummerPiano returns with a double mission of fostering advanced skills for high school pianists and introducing young players to the professional tools of learning the piano. In addition to daily instruction with the principal piano faculty and UNCSA alumnus Dr. Paul Gillies, SummerPiano offers two seminars: Intro to Collaborative Piano with Dr. Allison Gagnon, chair of Collaborative Piano Program, and Young Performers Seminar for students ages 12 and under, offered by UNCSA Community Music School faculty.
UNCSA's performance facilities feature a magnificent collection of Steinway pianos housed in three venues: four Steinway Model D concert grand pianos (three Hamburg and one New York) and a fifth Steinway Model B. There is a separate dedicated practice area for pianists, which features 14 comfortable soundproof rooms with regularly maintained grand pianos. The school also owns three French Double Manual harpsichords, a concert organ and three practice organs.
