Celebrating over 80 years on the shores of Lake Bemidji, the Department of Music at Bemidji State University prepares students to become independent and creative musicians within a liberal arts setting. Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), the Department of Music offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Music Education (vocal and instrumental), and Bachelor of Arts degrees in General Music, Vocal Performance, Instrumental Performance, and Piano Performance and Pedagogy.
Ensembles are open to students of all majors and provide engaging performance opportunities including regional and international tours, the annual JazzFest, guest clinician workshops and master classes, woodwind and piano festivals, and a fully staged opera production.
Bemidji State University is one of only four schools in Minnesota, and a limited number worldwide to bear the distinction of being an All-Steinway School. BSU currently owns more than 50 Steinway and Boston (a Steinway subsidiary) pianos.
For more information about the BSU piano program or piano camp, please contact Dr. Stephen Carlson.
