Students are given hundreds of opportunities for public performance each school year, many of which require working closely with a collaborative partner. Instrumentalists are encouraged to rehearse and perform with Curtis student pianists. All enrolled Curtis students are additionally provided with access to experienced staff pianists. These accompanists may be requested to prepare for private lessons with major faculty, Curtis-sponsored master classes and concerts, and performances in Field Concert Hall on the Student Recital Series.
Students may not engage staff pianists during Curtis-compensated time to prepare for non-Curtis engagements (such as recordings, "outside" concerts, competitions, auditions, etc.).
