Welcome to the GVSU Piano Area website!

Housed in the Department of Music and Dance in Grand Valley State University, we offer undergraduate-focused degree programs, helping these young minds take a full advantage of learning and performing opportunities available both on campus and in the greater off-campus community. We also have an exciting list of performances and masterclasses open to the public throughout the year. Please explore the website and stay in touch with us. We hope to see you soon on this beautiful GVSU campus!
