MA in the Pedagogy of Music Theory
Natalie Pang is a second-year Masters student pursuing the MA in Music Theory Pedagogy and MM in Piano Performance, studying piano with Alexander Kobrin. She received her Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance and Music Theory from Eastman, and is a member of the music society Pi Kappa Lambda. As a pianist, Natalie has been first prizewinner of competitions such as the Canadian Music Competition and Montreal Classical Music Festival, and has performed in venues across the United States and Canada. While at Eastman, her love for Scriabin and interest in music theory led her to add the theory major and pursue research in topic theory and music semiology, Schenkerian analysis, and the promotion of underrepresented composers in performance and pedagogy. In her spare time, Natalie loves running and biking, songwriting, learning the theremin, and baking in an experimental fashion using generously approximate measurements.
