Whether you’ve played piano for years or are just getting started, Merit’s celebrated faculty is here to help you unlock your full musical potential.
Our students have used their time at Merit to prepare for acceptance to some of the country’s best music conservatories, received international recognition for their talent, pursued careers as teaching artists and performers, and gained confidence to chase their dreams in music and beyond.
Each year, Merit Piano students of all ages come together to perform in concerts at the Joy Faith Knapp Music Center and at venues throughout Chicago. Past performances include concerts at Symphony Center, Grant Park Music Festival, the Economic Club of Chicago, and the Barnett & Fischoff Chamber Music Competitions. Some of our students have even performed at Carnegie Hall!
