Piano and Organ
Jeffrey Biegel, Coordinator
The Piano Programs at the Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College offer students in the Performance and Education degree courses an in-depth study of the repertoire for the instrument, developing stylistic interpretive skills and emphasizing performance practice in all styles of music. The required Piano Repertory Master Classes help students enhance their knowledge of piano repertoire and interpretation by means of open master classes taught each week by a rotating faculty. The distinguished faculty is unique at Brooklyn College as they are active performers as well, specializing in areas of standard piano literature, contemporary music, and jazz studies. The students are further encouraged to premiere new music written by their colleagues in the composition department, which fosters a unique and healthy environment and strengthens relationships between pianists and composers.
