UNO piano professor to present at prestigious keyboard pedagogy conference

UNO Assistant Professor of Piano, Dr. Kristín Jónína Taylor, was invited to present her lecture-recital, “Rebalancing the Scales: A renewed look at the solo piano music of Agathe Bäcker-Grøndahl,” at the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy 2021 conference, which takes place July 28-31, 2021.

Agathe Bäcker-Grøndahl (1847-1907) was well-known during her lifetime as an exceptional pianist and composer during the Golden Age of Norwegian music history. This lecture-recital will present a sampling of her works, ranging in time period from her early (1850s European style) to late (20th century/Impressionist) works, and intermediate to advanced levels, with a deliberation on some of the pedagogical aspects to her solo piano music. 

NCKP 2021 celebrates the transformative power of music through diverse experiences in the international field of piano teaching, learning, and performing.
