10th Anniversary Season
Festival May 30 – June 14

This festival is designed to raise your level of music making and piano playing. I have chosen great artists and pedagogues to help you achieve these goals.

This is an intense program, but exposure to high-caliber musicians + teachers is inspiring and will stay with you for a lifetime.
We are inspired by the level of talent this festival attracts. Because of my strong belief in educating and lifting up talented young pianists, this festival is free.

I look forward to hearing your audition.


Art of the Piano is a festival created to raise the level of artistry for young pianists.  It’s a platform for them to work with the world’s leading artists and teachers, to perfect recital and competition repertoire.  Art of the Piano is a fantastic place to be inspired, learn new ideas, go home a better musician.

“You can’t see music as it passes through the air.  You can’t grasp it and hold on to it.  You can’t smell it. You can’t taste it.  But it has a most powerful effect on most people.  And that is a wondrous thing to contemplate.”

- Leon Fleisher
