PEP: The Piano Extension Program
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 Dr. Hsiang Tu, a member of the piano faculty at UNH. He matches students with teachers, compiles starting “packets” for each student, and handles all registration and administrative aspects of the program.
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, conducted by Dr. Hsiang Tu, as well as perform in the Student Recital at the end of each semester at the Bratton Recital Hall with no extra costs.
The lessons are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters, concurrent with UNH's academic calendar. Summer session will be forthcoming in 2018.
Spring 2018 registration will open on January 15 for 13-week sessions; lessons will start on January 29. For 7-week sessions, registration begins on February 15 with lessons starting on March 19.
