Belmont Piano Camp

4/9/20 Update: Due to the COVID-19 crisis and concerns for the health and safety of participants, all Belmont summer music programs have been canceled for Summer 2020. We look forward to hosting the next event in summer 2021.

Belmont University’s summer Piano Camp is a six-day residential experience on Belmont University’s beautiful campus in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee. Pianists rising into 9th-12th grades may study classical or jazz piano, having a daily private lesson with a member of the nationally-recognized piano faculty.  There are also daily group sessions that include a variety of musical activities, and evening concerts and social events.
