Come be a part of one of South Carolina's most exciting collegiate music programs! Over the past year, students in the piano program at Coker received Honorable Mentions in the Young Artist and Senior Divisions of the SC MTNA Competitions, won scholarships such as the Sylvia Looney and Mary Avinger Scholarship Awards, and have performed in masterclasses with top concert pianists such as Boris Berman, Heidi Williams, and Michael Gurt. Former students the institute have now gone to study piano at the collegiate level.

The program features daily lessons, group lessons, and the opportunity to study four-hand piano music. Students will also benefit from a repertoire class and other activities to improve musicianship. 

Coker College has embarked on an All-Steinway Initiative, providing our students, faculty, and community with access to the finest instruments available.

"Working with top quality faculty and playing duets with other students forced me to grow and perform at the highest level that I could. It's a great experience to be in a community of other musicians that have just as much passion for piano as I do."
