The 2022 Thomas Schultz Summer Piano Seminar

The Thomas Schultz Summer Piano Seminar is an annual opportunity for young pianists — eighteen and older, who are at an advanced level of study — to work with the distinguished pianist and pedagogue Thomas Schultz on the campus of Stanford University. 

During the seminar, each participant prepares two works to play in a masterclass setting and in a public concert, drawing from both traditional repertoire and contemporary compositions. The masterclasses presented by Thomas Schultz and three seminar participant concerts will be open to the public at Campbell Recital Hall in Braun Music Center. The three concerts will also be livestreamed on this page.

The Thomas Schultz Summer Piano Seminar is sponsored by the Stanford Department of Music and supported by the Elaine and Richard Fohr Foundation.
