Summer Keyboard Camp 2024
Dates: June 17 – 21, 2024

We are delighted to invite you as a new or returning student in the 2024 UMSL Keyboard Camp. All activities will be in person and held on UMSL’s campus (UMSL Music Building, Touhill Performing Arts Center). We have designed our camp for enthusiastic keyboard (piano, organ) students who want to find ways to make playing easier, to have more fun, and to take their playing to the next level of accomplishment. You will discover new ways to practice, easy ways to help each note that you play sound better, and learn many shortcuts that professionals use to help them sound better and have more fun in the process. The days will be filled with lessons, classes, conversations, and activities led by our internationally acclaimed UMSL music faculty and our guest artists. All these experiences will supercharge your playing and send you into the summer with a new excitement for your musical future!

In person classes and rehearsals will begin each day at 10:00 AM (Central Time) and conclude at 4:30 PM, with a culminating performance on the final day (Friday, June 21st) beginning at 3:00 PM, which will be held at the Touhill Performing Arts Center!

 

We are thrilled to welcome Elizabeth Crecca as this year’s Guest Artist!

Our Organ Day is back by popular demand. It is entirely refreshed, and it will be led by UMSL’s own Dr. Michael Smith and promises to be wonderful! It will be held at Grace United Methodist Church.

A very special treat – Olga Rusinova, who is a painter, will be painting our faculty performances in real time!

We will continue our Piano Fitness with Dr. Alexander Tentser and Dalcroze Eurhythmics with Dr. Daniel Kuehler!

As always, each participant will have access to three private lessons with our camp faculty, masterclasses, everyday practicing, faculty performances, and a closing recital at the Touhill Performing Arts Center. This is a summer not to be missed!
