is unique in the world of piano instruction. Faculty and guests teach technique and musicianship in a 
traditional and innovative context while embracing creative and holistic concepts in learning, health 
and human potential. We are committed to a tuition-free festival. In this new, intimate and spectacular 
environment, with all new Steinway pianos, you will have the luxury of a dazzling array of lessons, 
classes and performance opportunities. Age range is approximately 18-28.  Join us at USF in Tampa.

The purpose of the Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival is to understand and encourage the 
uniqueness of each studentís talents and career goals. Our program offers an exceptional and 
exciting mixture of traditional and innovative classes, lessons and concerts with faculty and 
internationally renowned guests plus all the practice time you could wish for (7am to midnight). My 
personal goal is to promote a creative and successful enhancement to the traditional academic 
school year. There are daily lessons and classes. Students design their own course of study and 
have lessons and classes with as many teachers as possible. 

Solo piano applicants must apply online and upload a digital audition file (video or audio) and teacher 
recommendation by Friday, March 22, 2013. All application will be considered incomplete until the
