Interesting CP Article in Making Music

Amy Dunn Williams has written an interesting article about collaborative piano in the November Making Music entitled Like No Business I Know, with some observations about the experiences and opportunities in choral, dance, and musical theater accompanying. An excerpt:

Being a piano accompanist requires a very specialized skill set, and talent alone does not make a musician the right fit for the accompanist's chair. The best accompanists are excellent sight-readers, patient leaders, and team players. And if you have a knack for transposition, well, that's a big plus, too.

Uh huh. I particularly like the line about being a "patient leader".
