The Abby Whiteside Foundation

Abby Whiteside dedicated her life's work to helping students find and convey their emotional connection to music with freedom and clarity at the piano. Whiteside relentlessly pursued and acquired a profound awareness of the physical basis for a performance that is beautiful, moving, and technically fluent, and her approach to piano playing involves the student in a process that is musical from the very start.

The Abby Whiteside Foundation was established to keep Whiteside's work alive and to train a new generation of teachers and performers. The Foundation presents an acclaimed concert series at Carnegie Hall, featuring world-renowned artists and promising young pianists in the early stages of their careers.
