Within the framework approved by the faculty of the University and the College of Collaborative Piano at Michigan State University, graduate programs are designed to respond to current professional and social needs and to students’ expectations and goals.


The Collaborative Piano programs from Michigan State University combine selected aspects of the following learning opportunities: requisite course work; outreach and teaching experiences; and production, performance, or research projects.

The College faculty and student body represent diverse backgrounds and cultures and work together to challenge past assumptions and set future directions in the arts. An open and responsive learning environment continues to attract faculty, staff, and students from rich and varied cultural traditions into our educational community.
