Keyboard Ensemble is designed for music majors whose primary instrument is piano. The course meets once per week on Thursday from 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM. It is highly recommended that students be concurrently enrolled in applied lessons. 

Director: Mr. Eric Charnofsky

Instructional Format

The format involves coaching of in-class performances of solo literature, piano duets, and collaborative piano genres by enrolled students, as well as written and spoken presentations focusing on keyboard history, literature, and performance critique. A class recital concludes each semester, with each student performing an ensemble piece for a live audience. Recitals during the academic year take place in Harkness Chapel (2022-23: Dec 10 and April 30 at 4:00 PM).


Non-majors who are pianists and majors whose primary instrument is not piano may enroll with instructor permission following a successful audition. Please contact the ensemble director for more information.
