Program Overview: Bowdoin’s Collaborative Piano Program is a six-week summer course of intensive instrumental study for accomplished pianists interested in a collaborative career. Select top applicants admitted to the Collaborative Piano program will receive full fellowships (free tuition/fees/room/board). In addition, applicants not awarded the full fellowship may be admitted to the instrumental program where scholarships are available. A full six-week participation is required. All collaborative piano fellows and students receive:
- private lessons on their assignments with Pei-Shan Lee
- coachings with instrumental partners
- weekly studio classes
- ample performance opportunities
- advisement on professional topics
Additionally, valuable experience is gained from collaboration in the instrumental studios, masterclasses, and concert performances both on campus and in the community. Interested collaborative pianists may also audition to be placed in a piano chamber group, and have the chance to work with composer fellows on contemporary music.
