The University of Manitoba’s Desautels Faculty of Music offers an exciting, intensive program of study in Collaborative Piano. This program combines an equal emphasis of instrumental and vocal accompanying and is available for Post-Baccalaureate and Graduate study.
We provide an intimate and supportive environment where collaboration is encouraged. Performing opportunities for students of collaborative piano are numerous, both within the University and in the larger community.
We offer collaborative students multi-faceted approaches to learning. In addition to participating in vocal and instrumental studios and masterclasses, they receive two weekly lessons with collaborative piano professors who are active performers in their fields and passionate about sharing their love for ensemble music and collaboration.
Collaborative Piano Faculty:
Dr. Judy Kehler Siebert runs the Instrumental/Piano area and is a member of the piano faculty.
Dr. Laura Loewen, vocal coach and diction specialist, heads up the Vocal/Piano area. We encourage students to continue their solo piano studies if they wish.
