    Piano Lab is a practice lab for students to advance their piano playing ability.  Students spend a majority of this class in private piano practice under the direct coaching of the teacher.  Other aspects of the class include transcribing or "lifting" music by ear, and the development of proper piano technique. 

    The Piano Lab class is open to all students who have completed Piano Lab I or who can play at a comparable or above. Students will begin working at their current level of performance, develop performance goals and work to reach those goals during the semester.
