We believe that education is key and we are committed to providing high-quality educational and performing opportunities to TAMU-CC students. Our mission is to inspire, engage and equip students with tools and knowledge necessary for professional life. Alongside applied lessons and other keyboard related courses, we offer weekly studio classes, mid-term and end-of-the-semester departmental recitals as well as many opportunities to play in different chamber and large ensembles. Situated on a beautiful island, our students find themselves mesmerized and motivated when performing in the stunning Performing Arts Center Concert Hall that has hosted world-renowned pianists including Van Cliburn. Piano Celebration Week is our annual festival dedicated to celebrating the mastery and artistry of piano performance, music participation and collaboration. The festival helps the university community and beyond achieve the highest reaches of creative expression. We are in love with our fast-growing university, warm supporting music community, and diverse and vibrant culture of Corpus Christi. We welcome students to join our creative, energetic and passionate piano team! Please contact Dr. Dino Mulic at dino.mulic@tamucc.edu for more information regarding audition requirements.
