The London International Piano Symposium

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 a distinctive  and varied programme intended to enrich the approach by performers, academics and pedagogues to performance itself.


Review of the October 2018 Symposium at The Royal Academy of Music

Cristine MacKie does it again … pulls off the third annual London International Piano Symposium, this time back at the Royal Academy of Music. The conference brought together pianists, pedagogues, and researchers from around the world. I immensely enjoyed the great company—all the laughter, good food, beautiful music—and carefully curated single-track series of interesting talks on all aspects of piano performance. Thank you, Cristine!’
