Teaching Activities in our Keyboard Gallery

Our space at 726 University Avenue has seen extensive use for external teaching, having shared our Center's resources with those outside Cornell through digital technology. Since assuming his post, Artist-in-Residence Mike Lee has given multiple guest lectures from our keyboard gallery for graduate pianists at both the Thornton School of Music, University of Southern California (at the invitation of Jeffrey Kahane) and the Eastman School of Music. These sessions provide opportunities for professional students to witness and interact with our instruments virtually.

A highlight of the Fall 2021 semester was when a group of graduate piano students, hailing from both Asia and Europe, led by Prof. Alon Goldstein of the University of Missouri-Kansas City came to work with Professor Emeritus Malcolm Bilson over the span of three days. In the words of Goldstein, “[Professor Bilson] brought to life these instruments and the language in a way I have never experienced before. We were in awe!”
