The Academy employs 23 pianists who are responsible for working with and accompanying performance students throughout their studies. During their sessions they aid students in learning new material, rehearse playing together, and offer instuction and guidance on the student's individual repertoire.
The department also offers accompaniment on cembalo and fortepiano. Many of our accompanists are active performers and recording musicians involved in various projects outside the Academy.
The accompanists at the Norwegian Academy of Music are important contributors at concerts, masterclasses, seminars, exams and auditions.
