The IPFW Gene Marcus Piano Camp aims to inspire young pianists to strive for artistic excellence and to encourage them to reach their potential in piano study and performance.
Students are immersed in all things piano, from a variety of workshops and group sessions, master classes, Alexander technique, music theory and keyboard musicianship classes and ensemble playing, to daily individual lessons with camp faculty and practice sessions guided by experienced practice coaches, all to help them progress rapidly and continue to be excited about making music throughout the year. Daily evening activities include performances by guest artists and faculty as well as camp participants.

The camp is open to students ages 12-18 with at least two years of prior piano study who are interested in improving their playing and performance. It includes both a residential and a commuter option; applications from students residing anywhere in the US or abroad are accepted.

All camp activities take place at the John and Ruth Rhinehart Music Center, on the campus of IPFW. IPFW is a Carnegie Community Engaged University that awards Indiana University bachelor’s degrees in music. The attractive music building provides an ideal learning environment and includes excellent rehearsal spaces, studios and performance halls. Recitals and master classes are held in Rhinehart Recital Hall, an acoustically superb performance venue. Ample practice facilities are available, including a number of rooms equipped with grand pianos.
