The World's Largest Piano Lesson

A very grand use of the Internet!!

"The World's Largest Piano Lesson: Preparing for Performance" is a first-of-a-kind opportunity for people everywhere to participate in a rare interactive master class that will take place over the Internet. "It's a revealing lesson that takes participants into the often secluded world of performance preparation," explains Richard Bosworth, the virtuoso pianist who will headline the event at Lincoln Center in the fall. Bosworth, an Internationally known concert pianist and master teacher, will provide part of the lesson with a performance of selected pieces, including the Andante spianato et grande polonaise brillante, Op. 22 by Frederic Chopin. His performance at Lincoln Center will be filmed to form the basis of a Webimentary™ that will use Internet streaming, live footage, MIDI technology, and interactive audience Q&A to provide an exclusive and unique program via the personal computer.

Interesting. Classical meets the Internet through technology but still maintains its core purity - preparing for a concert. Very interesting. Thanks for the post and info about this event.
