Piano Accompanying

barr crop2The training of pianists as artistic collaborators is the goal of the graduate programs in piano accompanying. Collaborative pianists must have the same technical skills as soloists, plus knowledge of languages, diction, sonata and duo repertory, vocal repertory, and chamber music. Recital requirements include performances with instrumentalists and vocalists. The lively performance scene at Eastman creates a willing body of collaborators and many performance opportunities for accompanying majors. Guest artists and lecturers have included Sylvie Beaudette, Elizabeth Buccheri, Paula Fan, Jonathan Feldman, Graham Johnson, Warren Jones, Martin Katz, Gwendolyn Koldofsky, Tatevik Mokatsian, Phillip Moll, Tom Muraco, Alexandra Nguyen, Robert Spillman and Roger Vignoles.
