Piano Studies at Florida College
By fostering a Christ-centered mindset while pursuing academic excellence, piano studies at Florida College equip the music major or non-major with the requisite skills to achieve their musical goals.  Whether you are a music major hoping to later attend a major conservatory or a beginner who has always wanted to learn piano, now is your opportunity to enjoy the enrichment of piano studies.

For the advanced student, private piano lessons offer individual instruction, giving students the musical and technical tools they need to achieve their personal best.  Group piano classes offer functional keyboard skills that prove useful in many contexts, whether for enjoyment or profession. 

Piano students at Florida College have opportunities to perform in studio classes, recitals, competitions and community outreach. The most advanced students may be called upon to accompany, often receiving compensation.
