Abstract

Although piano playing is considered to be a solitary occupation, much pianistic repertoire is collaborative. This research examines views about the essence of collaborative piano, the skills necessary to collaborate well, and collaborative experiences, both positive and less so. It looks at the opinions of not only pianists, but also of instrumentalists and singers, as obtained through a series of semi-structured interviews, and compares these opinions. This research finds that musicians who collaborate often have widely contrasting views about the collaborative experience and then leads to suggestions regarding approaches that can be taken to minimise this divide.
