The London International Piano Symposium

Researching at the Interface between
Science and the Art of Piano Performance

Royal Academy of Music, October 28-30th 2018

The London International Piano Symposium (LIPS) is committed to enabling world-leading research at  the interface between science, medicine and the art of piano performance.  Ours is a dynamic initiative in which each symposium offers an internationally distinctive  and varied programme intended to enrich the approach by performers, academics and pedagogues to performance itself.



New Thoughts on Piano Performance: Research at the Interface between Science and the Art of Piano Performance (2017) is a London International Piano Symposium publication, which presents interdisciplinary research, the overarching goal of which is to expand the frontiers of knowledge in the field of piano performance, by exploring the interface between skilled artistry and scientific research. It is a work of central importance to those musicians who are seeking to achieve elite performance, as well as researchers, pedagogues, clinicians, and all those who are passionate about the piano and its future development.For more details see Latest News
