Piano

The Piano Faculty has a worldwide reputation for training aspiring pianists as soloists, chamber musicians and accompanists. 

 
We train pianists to think creatively. We will encourage you to find your artistic identity as a performer, developing your technique to become a well-rounded and imaginative musician.

The Academy offers two areas of Principal Study for pianists:

Piano Solo

(undergraduate and postgraduate)

This area of study focuses on solo repertoire, concerto performance and all aspects of professional training. You will work closely with your piano professor, but you will also have the opportunity to play to Visiting Professors and in public masterclasses. Your training also includes regular chamber music and accompaniment experience.

Piano Solo: Your Experience

Chamber Music and Piano Accompaniment

(postgraduate only)

The Piano Accompaniment Course allows students to develop the highest standards of musicianship and pianism through study of ensemble repertoire. A combination of instrumental and vocal collaboration is central to the course and accompanists benefit from the experience and expertise of professors in all departments of the Academy, in addition to their own teachers.

Chamber Music and Piano Accompaniment: Your Experience

If you are interested in the Academy’s Répétiteur course, information can be found under Royal Academy Opera. Some répétiteur experience is also offered to students studying in the Piano Faculty.
