Piedmont music students hone their craft in a space and place that inspires creativity and immersion.
The space is the college’s just-completed $10.1 million Conservatory of Music, one of the finest music-instruction facilities in the state. It includes a concert hall with adjustable acoustics, acoustically isolated teaching studios, practice rooms, and a digital music suite. It also houses 27 Steinway pianos. The hand-crafted instruments, widely considered the finest in the world, are synonymous with prestige and quality.
The place is a cozy, rural campus that embraces the arts. At Piedmont, more than 200 students – about 15 percent of the college’s undergraduate population – participate in music academic programs and ensembles. Music patrons throughout Northeast Georgia visit Demorest each year to attend many of the college’s 40 free concerts and recitals. The college also hosts international guest artists and masterclasses. Undergraduate ensembles perform throughout the state and nation.
