Mission

The ISU Preparatory Piano program was founded in 2000 to serve a dual purpose: to offer quality piano instruction to students at all levels, school-age and above; and provide ISU keyboard majors the necessary and guided teaching internships that will ensure their professional success.

The teachers include experienced keyboard majors at ISU, faculty and staff at ISU, and ISU alumni. This program is nationally accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
