The ASU Herberger College Piano Prep/Conservatory Program celebrates its 20th year with a gala reunion event including two recitals and a reunion reception for current and former students and teachers, their families, special guests and friends.

A highly respected and successful program since 1988, Piano Prep has impacted students throughout the Valley with its program of pre-school, elementary and advanced piano instruction.
