Celebrating the distinction of Kent State’s all-Steinway school, the dedicated and distinguished faculty in the Piano Division proudly provide students with top-quality training on the finest instruments in a nurturing and educational environment. Our students are eager to learn and grow, and many go on to successfully secure admission and awards at prestigious graduate schools and employment at various arts institutions, among other opportunities.

The Piano Division offers the following activities to the students and community: The Kent Keyboard Series, which showcases our piano faculty and illustrious guest artists in recitals and master classes; the Teaching Institute Program, a pedagogy initiative that pairs qualified undergraduate and graduate piano majors with pre-college students from the community; and the Piano Institute at Kent State, home to 14 highly talented students, grades 7 – 12, for an 11-day intensive summer program.
