The Keyboard Area of the Fred Fox School of Music is proud of its long tradition of excellence and its commitment to leading young pianists and organists to realize their potential. Our graduates can be found sharing their talents in the world’s concert halls, in colleges and universities, in religious institutions, and in private teaching studios. Students drawn from throughout the world are mentored by a diverse and internationally-recognized faculty who encourage excellence in performance, innovation in programming, and a spirit of collegiality in the field.
Studies center on studio instruction, weekly master classes, and regularly-scheduled public concerts. Performance and teaching opportunities abound both on campus and regionally, and our students gain real-world experience in audience development through programs such as Arizona Camerata, the UA Pianists on Tour series, and radio broadcasts on Arizona Public Media.
The Fred Fox School of Music is the only All-Steinway School in the Southwest, a region that has drawn musicians, artists, poets, writers, and architects for generations. Located in the heart of the spectacular Sonoran Desert and surrounded by five mountain ranges, Tucson is a city of over one million inhabitants that is rich in culture and history. The warm climate during the academic year is ideal for piano study.
