SMPI ABOUT US
Our mission is to offer a quality education in piano to pre-college students and adults in the community, and to provide teacher training opportunities for University of Southern Mississippi students who are enrolled in pedagogy classes. Our faculty is dedicated to help students reach their highest potential and to equip them with musicianship skills that can be applied to all areas of music. All students enrolled in SMPI will receive private instruction, as well as performance opportunities in institute recitals, and in local festivals and events. Weekly private instruction is offered in 30-, 45-, and 60-minute increments.
Throughout the year there are numerous opportunities to perform. At the discretion of the instructor, students are encouraged to participate actively in SMPI recitals (held at the end of each semester), HMTL (Hattiesburg Music Teachers League) recitals, and the various festivals and competitive events in the southern Mississippi region and beyond.
