Last Thursday, Feb. 28, Jennifer Hayghe, an Associate Professor of Performance Studies at the School of Music, took part in the Piano Artist Master Class Series offered at New York University's Steinhardt of Culture, Education, and Human Development. 

The annual Artist Master Class Series, running from January to May, offers a window into the creative process, as 14 world-renowned performing artists offer guidance and inspiration to the pianists of NYU Steinhardt. The master classes are free and open to the public.

Hayghe has performed in solo recitals and made orchestral appearances throughout the world, including the United States, Europe and Asia. Hayghe received her bachelors, masters degrees, and doctorate degree in piano performance from The Juilliard School, where she was the last student of the legendary artist-teacher Adele Marcus. Hayghe won every award possible for a Juilliard pianist to receive, including the William Petschek Debut Award, resulting in her New York City recital debut at Alice Tully Hall.
