Piano Classes

  • COVID-19 Pandemic Update: Fall 2020

    The Adult Piano I class will not be meeting this fall due to health concerns and limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are hopeful that they can be offered in the spring 2021 semester, but it obviously depends on the situation with the pandemic.

    However, registration for both online and in-person private lessons is OPEN and will be ongoing and rolling throughout the semester. For more information on lessons, please see the Private Lessons page.

    For additional information from the IUP Community Music School, please see the IUPCMS home page, and for more information from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, please see the comprehensive Coronavirus Information page.
