|Description:||Piano majors at McGill are under the guidance of a remarkable team of teachers. Well known as both soloists and chamber musicians, the piano faculty includes prize winners in the Van Cliburn, Tchaikovsky, Budapest, Vianna da Motta and Montreal International Competitions.
Training involves all aspects of a professional career, and focuses on the solo repertoire. It also includes chamber music, large ensembles, and two pianos-four hands literature. Pedagogical preparation of tomorrow's piano teachers is also a concern of the program. Public recitals are required of undergraduate Performance students from the second term onwards and from the first term at the graduate level. Competitions at the national and international levels are also strongly encouraged. Finally, a unique piano seminar is offered to graduate and third-year undergraduate students, where many specific topics that are usually not discussed in a formal lesson's context can be debated in group classes.
