For over twenty years, the PEP program has been providing quality piano lessons with performing opportunities to area children and adults at a reasonable rate on the University of New Hampshire (Durham) campus. The entire program is overseen by a member of the piano faculty at UNH. Lessons are taught by advanced piano students and recent graduates of the UNH Music Department who have demonstrated the ability and enthusiasm for teaching, and who have completed an intensive course in piano pedagogy. These private lessons are either 30 or 45 minutes in length and take place in the Paul Creative Arts Center of the University of New Hampshire. 

Besides private lessons, students of the PEP are also eligible to play in the monthly Performance Class and in the Student Recital at the end of each semester in the Bratton Recital Hall with no extra costs. 

The lessons are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters, concurrent with UNH's academic calendar. 

Thank you for your interest in the PEP at UNH and please email Mathilde.Handelsman@unh.edu for any inquiries.
