Located in a beautiful part of Appalachian Mountains, East Tennessee State University (ETSU) piano program offers opportunities for students to learn and grow into outstanding performers and pedagogues. ETSU is an “All Steinway School” where students practice and perform on Steinway grand pianos.
ETSU piano students have the opportunity to earn a degree in Piano Performance or Music Education. In addition to weekly lessons by the outstanding piano faculty Benjamin Caton, Chih-Long Hu, and JerilynPaolini, all piano students meet weekly to perform in studio class, and are encouraged to perform in concerts and competitions. Each semester a student performs at least five times in studio class, master class, solo and chamber concert settings. Many students have garnered top prizes from local, state, and international competitions. Many of our students have continued their education at schools such as the Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Eastman School of Music, Florida State University, Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and Ohio State University. In addition, students also have an opportunity to focus in music education and obtain a teachingcertificate, enabling them to teach in public schools.
ETSU has an exciting concert series featuring internationally famed guest artists. Students are given the opportunity to attend many concerts and be instructed in master classes by Arthur Greene (Gina Bachauer Competition winner), Alexander Kobrin (Van Cliburn, Gold medalist), Antonnio Pompa-Baldi (Van Cliburn, Silver Medalist), Valentina Lisitsa (concert pianists), Chu-Fang Huang (Cleveland, Winner), Ju Jin (Tchaikovsky, Bronze medalist), and many other top musicians.
The ETSU Music Department offers many scholarship opportunities for students to pursue degrees in piano, including the Public Performance Scholarships, Academic Performance Scholarships, and Powell Steinway Scholarships. The majority of ETSU piano students receive scholarships that cover 70-80% of the tuition costs, while the most outstanding students are awarded scholarships that cover tuition in full. Scholarship auditions are held annually in February.
