Workshop and Q and A with pianist students from Eastman...

Music does not exist in a vacuum—it lives in the real world. Music is about communication. As the great composer Gustav Mahler wrote, “If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music.” In order to have something meaningful to say, a musician must lead a rich and interesting life. Toward that end, we believe in educating the whole student—not just about the techniques of music, but also through the study of humanities, by interdisciplinary pursuits, and by converging music with other arts.
Eastman is an amazing community of artists, performers, composers, and scholars who are committed to preparing students for meaningful lives in music. Engraved on the façade of the Eastman Theatre is the phrase, “for the enrichment of community life.”
