Glauser School of Music, will present a series of concerts and master classes from July 18 through July 27 at various locations on the campus of Kent State University. The five-year-old program is a highly intensive festival for talented piano students in grades 7 – 12. The 14 students, from all over the United States and several from China will experience a unique combination of lessons, master classes and performance opportunities. 

Instructors of the Piano Institute include Dr. Donna Lee, associate professor and coordinator of the Piano Division and Dr. Jerry Wong, associate professor of piano. This year’s guests artists are Joela Jones, principal keyboardist for The Cleveland Orchestra and Dr. Sean Schulze, chair, Preparatory Piano Department, Cleveland Institute of Music. 

Piano Institute participants receive four hours of one-on-one lessons daily; attend master classes; study sight-reading, technique, practicing and audition/competition preparation.
