Interview with Eleanor Sokoloff, Part 1

My beloved piano teacher, Eleanor Sokoloff is 100 years young and still teaching actively at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Mrs. Sokoloff has trained some of the top pianists in the classical world during her 79 years of teaching.

In this video interview, Mrs. Sokoloff names some of her top students; gives her thoughts on how pianists can have successful careers; shares some of the secrets of her teaching style and technique training; discusses how to prevent injury; talks about her childhood in Cleveland, Ohio and her beginnings with the piano at the Cleveland Institute of Music; opens up frankly about her stage fright; talks about her first piano teachers (some of them rather awful) as well as her first studies with David Saperton at Curtis.
