    Calgary Piano Institute: Summer
    Ages 7 - 18

Get inspired and realize your potential! 

 

The Calgary Piano Institute is an intensive one-week piano immersion program designed to provide inspiration, opportunities, and support during their Spring/Summer Break! Students will be immersed in a wide variety of musical experiences, develop friendships, and grow as young artists. Taking place once in the Spring and then again at the end of the Summer, the program aims to strengthen technical skills while also providing motivation to finish the year strong - or in the case of the Summer program - start the year with focus and enthusiam. This week of musical excitement will culminate in a final Grand Recital on the last day. Parents, friends, family, and the general public are all welcome and encouraged to attend free of charge.
