The Keyboard Studies program at the University of Central Oklahoma offers students the opportunity to grow as a musician with experienced and caring teachers. Students perform and share ideas in various settings including solo, ensemble, and master-classes with special artists/teachers. To enhance their musical and technical growth, they can also study with internationally renowned Artist-in-Residence, Dr. Valery Kuleshov, the 1998 Van Cliburn Silver Medalist. Piano Literature and Piano Pedagogy, taught by Fulbright Scholar Dr. Chindarat Charoenwongse Shaw, are parts of the curriculum for the pianists/teachers of the twenty-first century. The goal of preparing effective teachers includes hands-on experience and supervised student teaching with readily accessible mentoring. UCO keyboard graduates take pride in the quality enrichment they receive from their scholarly and artistic experience.
