Frequently Asked Questions
What will I do in class piano (not necessarily CFPA Piano)?
You will build piano skills you can use your whole life. We will help each student get better at reading music, piano technique, performance, improvisation, making original music, and other real-world music skills. For more details, check out the Course Syllabus.
If I take class piano, will I have to perform in front of other people?
Yes, and your teachers will make sure you are ready. Every student will play an appropriate level piece at both the Winter and Spring Piano Recitals.

When are auditions for the CFPA Piano program?
How do I sign up for a CFPA Piano audition time?
Sign up on the CFPA website.
What do I need to do for my audition?
See the audition requirements on page 4 of this document.
What does "contrasting styles" mean?
This means that the two pieces should sound pretty different. For example, if one of your pieces is very fast with a lot of fast passages, the other might be slower and smoother. Or, if one is classical (Beethoven, Mozart, etc.), the other could be more modern (broadway, pop, jazz, etc.).
How many students are accepted into the CFPA Piano program?
This will change every year depending on available space in our program.
Who are the piano teachers?
Dr. Klontz and Mr. Mills teach class piano and supervise the CFPA Piano program.
