Immersion in vocal repertoire for pianists
The AIMS Collaborative Piano Program offers a unique opportunity for pianists to expand their knowledge of the vocal repertoire and their skills in vocal coaching. Pianists study with the head of the AIMS Collaborative Piano Program and also with the professional collaborative piano coaches on the AIMS faculty.
Pianists from all countries are welcome to audition for AIMS.
Collaborative Pianists are a part of the Lieder Studio program which concentrates on German Lieder, and techniques of playing and coaching the art song. Pianists enjoy many opportunities to observe voice and coaching sessions, as well as master classes with professional singers and coaches. Pianists also have performance opportunities through the many concerts offered each summer including the two performances given by each Lieder Studio. Lieder pianists are eligible to receive the Outstanding Lieder Collaborative Pianist Award.
