Keyboard students at the Lamont School of Music have the opportunity to study piano, organ or carillon. Lamont is an "All-Steinway School," possessing 85 acoustic pianos from the Steinway Piano Company. A freestanding 56-rank, 3,000-pipe Schuke Orgelbau Berlin organ is the centerpiece of Hamilton Recital Hall. The Williams Carillon, housed in a stunning gold tower on the north end of campus, is a favorite University of Denver landmark.
Piano students will study with award-winning artist-teachers, Stephanie Cheng, Heidi Brende-Leathwood and/or Steven Mayer. Students enrolled in piano pedagogy will study with Chee-Hwa Tan, a distinguished pianist, educator, clinician and composer. Joseph Galema leads organ studies at Lamont, and Carol Jickling-Lens is our University Carillonneur.
