The Arizona Piano Institute presents a wonderful opportunity for all of you, dear young pianists, to study with internationally known dedicated teachers, to learn from them, and to connect with like-minded fellow students who are as eager to gain more experience as you are! We hope to see you at the Institute in early June for a week filled with music and fun to explore together the treasures of the rich solo and ensemble piano literature!

I am privileged to have the opportunity to volunteer at Arizona Piano Institute.  It is very rewarding to listen to students with immense talent and dedication, and I personally have benefited from the many masterclasses that are an integral part of the API Summer Festival.

API is more than just a summer music camp! There are many wonderful opportunities for budding pianists to learn from and be inspired by. My daughter has attended masterclasses by master teachers and concerts by amazing pianists. Thank you to all the board and volunteers for providing this wonderful learning environment!

It is such a privilege to hear Dr. Nelita True, Professor Norman Krieger and Professor Eckart Sellheim in the master classes. I am also inspired by many of the small classes.
