PianoTexas International Academy & Festival
in collaboration with The Van Cliburn Foundation
presents

Master Classes with the Jurors
During the International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs


PianoTexas endeavors to provide a variety of experiences and opportunities for amateur pianists. Since 1996 our participants had a chance to play concertos with the Fort Worth Symphony, chamber music with professional string quartets, solo recitals in addition to participating in master classes, and private lessons. 

The master classes during the IPCOA especially cater for competitors who desire to gain insight into their playing and the works they are presenting for the Competition. Not only solo works will be featured, but for those who have equal passion for chamber music, there will be a rare opportunity with José Feghali and members of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, to explore the piano trio repertoire.

We will present five master classes each accommodating three amateur performers. Only a limited number of performers can be catered for and applications will be considered on a first-come-first served basis.

Participants have the option of staying in the TCU dormitory from May 27 to June 4. These rooms are conveniently located right next to the music building, where the Competition takes place. They are spacious bedrooms with semi-private baths, comfortable lounges, large common kitchens, and laundry facilities. Bedrooms are provided with linen and towels, and equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave oven, and phone jacks. The University cafeteria and other places to eat are all within easy walking distance. Cost of single room is $43 per night, and double room is $32 per person per night. For more details on the dorm facilities please visit TCU Residential Services.
