New York University Announces M.M. in Collaborative Piano

The Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions at New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development has just started a Master of Music program in Collaborative Piano that will be accepting students starting in the 09-10 academic year. Under the auspices of NYU Steinhardt Piano Studies, the collaborative piano degree will be offered as a concentration within the M.M. in Music Performance and Composition.

Marilyn Nonken, Director of Piano Studies, sends along the following information about the program and its faculty:
This new degree concentration is very close to my heart! and our Artist Faculty specializing in Collaborative Piano include Anne-Marie McDermott (Artist, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center) and Grant Wenaus (pianist and coach, Glimmerglass Opera), as well as myself (with expertise in new music, Ensemble 21, Elision, and the Group for Contemporary Music) ...Due to the special nature of our program, students have the opportunity to work with both vocalists and instrumentalists, but can choose to focus in their area of choice, such as musical theatre direction, or classical instrumental performance.
You can contact Dr. Nonken at marilyn dot nonken [at] nyu dot edu for more information about applications and auditions. Best of luck to everyone involved with this exciting new program.
