Abstract

As piano performance students, we have collaborated with other musicians for several years. In the summer of 2021, we began working remotely with vocalists from UNL using Soundjack, a real-time communication system where musicians/singers interact as if they were in the same room. Collaborative piano encompasses the field in which pianists collaborate with one or more singers, instrumentalists, or other artists to rehearse and perform music.

Our work will seek to answer the question: What does a working relationship between undergraduate vocalists and collaborative pianists look like? This is answered by exploring collaboration over 10 weeks, with rehearsals between vocalists and collaborative pianists, and lessons involving both musicians' instructors. The rehearsals were both virtual and in-person. There is little research published exploring collaborative musicians at the undergraduate level, and our research begins to fill this gap.

This research will contribute to how music education and collaborative music change in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The future of music education will be changed by new technology and methods developed during this time. Music educators and students continue to hone their online teaching techniques, and this research plays a role in that development. Throughout the study, we kept detailed records of preparations, rehearsals with our collaborators, and lessons with both professors. Now, we have a comprehensive record of our experiences which serves as a tool for instructors and students alike, contributing to the greater musical community.

We will present our final project at UNO’s RCAF in March 2022.
