An Enviable Reputation for Excellence

By nurturing the talents of the musicians of tomorrow, The Australian National University’s Keyboard Institute broadens the horizons of keyboard art.

The Keyboard Institute is built upon The ANU School of Music’s long-established distinction in keyboard performance. Through national and international partnerships, the Keyboard Institute reaches out to students, scholars, professional musicians and the broader community of music lovers who have a passion for keyboard music, ranging from western music’s past to cutting edge innovation and contemporary practice.

The Keyboard Institute provides an environment where keyboard related activities occur, such as:

- Performance (including performance practice, improvisation and jazz),
- Pedagogy and composition,
- Research, and
- Instrument making and restoration.

In collaboration with the ANU Centre for New Media Arts, the Keyboard Institute continues to respond to the challenge of the ‘new’.
