Starting in conjunction with level three of their private instruction, performance majors take recital preparation classes to provide enhanced focus on repertoire and public performance on their principal instrument.

The Piano Department encourages students to find their own voice and develop their own style. Private instruction encourages students to experiment across genres to build skills and challenge themselves. Berklee prepares you for today's music by building on traditional aspects of learning. Piano Department instruction emphasizes a foundation in the standard technical challenges of professional performance—scales, arpeggios, exercises such as Hanon, Czerny, and Pishna—as well as materials designed to help students master the many combinations of classical, jazz, pop, and rock styles common in today's music. The department also provides intensive training in sight-reading and in chord symbol terminology and chord voicing.
