    The 2014 Summer Piano Camp is under the direction of Dr. Elaine Harriss, Professor Music at UTM. It is for upper intermediate and advanced level students who have completed grades 7-12. Students will meet daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. June 23-27, in the Fine Arts Building on the University campus. Lunch will be in the campus cafeteria. Activities will include piano lessons and ensemble coaching with Dr. Elaine Harriss, theory classes and organ lessons with Dr. Scott Roberts, an introduction to the harpsichord, daily sight-reading practice, and selected special presentations. Students will have opportunities to perform both solo and ensemble music for piano. An end-of-camp-program is planned for Friday afternoon.


    The camp fee is $250 and covers all activities, materials, and lunch. A $40 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your place in the camp. Payment of any remaining fees is due by June 16.
