University of Colorado Boulder


Welcome to the Keyboard Department at the University of Colorado Boulder! We are home to passionate educators and performers skilled in all facets of keyboard study, including solo performance, pedagogy, collaborative piano, chamber music, organ, harpsichord, literature, jazz performance and improvisation.

Our department features internationally recognized faculty uniquely equipped to provide a strong education to keyboardists of all kinds. Recently we have had the pleasure of hosting guest artists such as Margo Garrett, Victor Rosenbaum, Kevin Kenner and Anton Nel for master classes and performances. See other guest artists here.

Undergraduate students may choose to pursue BA, BM, or BME degrees. MM and DMA degree programs include extensive and individually considered requirements in repertoire, recitals and research work.
