Presentations

  • Presenter at the 2016 UMTA (Utah Music Teacher's Association) State Conference at Weber State University. "The Concert Pianist's Armor: strategies to cope with mental and physical obstacles related to live performance." "I would give anything to play the way you do!" is a frequently heard sentence by concert pianists from their audience members, but few people truly know the immense difficulties associated with a concert career. Whether it is playing complex music from memory in front of thousands of people, or dealing with constant performance anxiety, the life of a concert pianist is fraught with extreme challenges. In this seminar, internationally-renown concert pianist Andrew Staupe will give you a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a performing artist, talk about how to overcome these various problems, and how to lead a fulfilling artistic career as a musician of any age. Invited Talk/Keynote, Presented, 11/05/2016.
