Students gain the skills required not only for piano performance but also for teaching piano.  Instruction occurs through individual private training, seminars, workshops, observations, performances, internships, guest artists and master classes.  Graduates attain a high level of musicianship and pedagogy allowing for flexibility in the marketplace.  Hands-on experience in teaching is available through Samford's Academy of the Arts and summer programs as well as in local churches and studios.
