Returning to Campus

Find CIM’s plan for fall 2020, learn about the safety measures in place and access resources at cim.edu/return-to-campus.

As a collaborative piano student, you’ll develop the ability to be a true musical partner with other musicians. Studies in sight reading, improvisation, accompanying seminar, transposition and keyboard reduction will develop your knowledge and skills. You’ll study language diction for vocal coaching and chamber music for instrumental collaboration.

As part of the keyboard department, you’ll also get extra exposure to great performers with master classes conducted by international soloists.

CIM is an All-Steinway School with more than 160 Steinways, including a small number available for students to use at home through our piano loan program.
