be an auditor-volunteer or A host family

Teachers, parents, and music lovers: we need your help during our Summer Festival! We need volunteers to monitor masterclass rooms, workshops and performances, the registration desk, help students navigate the campus, and more. Volunteers receive free auditor passes to any Festival activity for any day they volunteer.

If you are interested in volunteering as a host for one of the students, please contact us as soon as possible. We appreciate your hospitality in hosting our young students and parents who leave home and need a safe place to stay.

To volunteer in any way, please contact Dr. Stuart Foster at Thank you.


Become a Friend

Your donation allows us to provide arts education to young students and the public. We are run solely by volunteers who are professional artists and donate their time and resources to help develop productive, caring citizens of the future.

Spread the Word

Tell your friends, family, and colleagues about us. We are dedicated to the betterment of our community through the arts. Become an active advocate yourself, too!

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.
