Hello Everyone and Welcome!
I'm super excited to be able to teach on-line thru hireartists!
I offer music lessons to all ages, at any level, and in many musical genres.
I'm hoping to keep my prices reasonably low for these tough pandemic times.
My lessons offer general music skills (reading, rhythm, ear training), piano lessons, performance practice, composer-performer collaboration, notation, music theory, and music appreciation.
As a free-lance musician based in NYC with 40 years professional experience touring around the globe. I am a classically trained pianist, with a focus on new music - sometimes incorporating singing and acting into works. I have performed in some of the world's major concert halls -- Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Lincoln Centre, Musikverein, La Scala. For 16 years I was the (founding) pianist for the Bang on a Can All-stars! I play tennis, bake bread, shoot video and photography - amongst many other things!
Please check out my music on line.
Here is my bio 'blurb':
"When Lisa Moore performs, the room erupts with virtuosity, soul, and drama. 'Pitchfork' writes “The New York-based Australian pianist Lisa Moore is a tightrope-walker, a daredevil. She’s the best kind of contemporary classical musician, one so fearsomely game that she inspires composers to offer her their most wildly unplayable ideas. She can play them all”. The New York Times writes that Lisa possesses "steely virtuosity and bold imagination” and "has always been a natural, compelling storyteller". This Australian-born pianist has released 10 solo discs ranging from Leoš Janáček to Philip Glass and more than thirty collaborative discs. Gramophone writes of her 2015 Mad Rush Philip Glass solo disc (Orange Mountain) “what becomes abundantly clear from listening to almost any bar on this recording is Moore’s highly developed, intuitive and nuanced approach to this music, one which has been allowed to evolve and refine over a number of years”. Lisa’s 2016 disc The Stone People (Cantaloupe), was cited in The New York Times Top Classical Albums of 2016 and the 2017 Naxos Critics’ Choice."
Lisa was the founding pianist for the Bang On A Can All-Stars from 1992-2008 and, with them, the winner of Musical America’s 2005 Ensemble of the Year award. Given a special passion for the music of our time she has worked with over 200 composers – including Iannis Xenakis, Elliot Carter, Philip Glass, Steve Reich,Meredith Monk, Frederic Rzewski, Ornette Coleman, Jonny Greenwood, David Lang, Don Byron, Martin Bresnick, Elena Kats-Chernin, Paul Grabowski, Kate Neal, Thurston Moore, Missy Mazzoli, Hannah Lash, and Julia Wolfe.
Enjoying diverse collaborative projects throughout the globe, Lisa Moore has performed with a large range of musicians, ensembles and artists – the London Sinfonietta, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Steve Reich Ensemble, New York City Ballet, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and the American Composers Orchestra. She is a member of Grand Band, Ensemble Signal, Tempus Duo, TwoSense, and the Paul Dresher Double Duo.
Lisa Moore has performed concertos with the London Sinfonietta, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Wesleyan University Orchestra with Sumarsam Gamelan, Albany Symphony, Sydney Symphony, Tasmania Symphony, La Jolla Symphony, Thai National Orchestra, Canberra Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Virtuosi, Monash Performing Arts Orchestra, Clocked Out, and the Queensland Philharmonic. She has performed under the batons of David Robertson, Leonard Bernstein, Bradley Lubman, Brett Dean, Richard Mills, Reinbert de Leeuw, Pierre Boulez, Jorge Mester, Benjamin Northey, Angel Gil-Ordonez, Steven Schick, and Edo de Waart.
Performing on some of the world’s great stages – La Scala, the Musikverein, the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, and the Royal Albert Hall — Lisa’s festival guest appearances include Lincoln Center, BAM Next Wave, Big Ears, Banff, Crash Dublin, Vienna, Graz, Trondheim, Rome, Venice, Palermo, Turin, Aspen, Tanglewood, Gilmore, Chautauqua, Huddersfield, Paris d’Automne, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, BBC Proms, Southbank, Uzbekistan, Leningrad, Moscow, Lithuania, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne Metropolis, Israel and Warsaw.
Lisa Moore has also enjoyed artistic curation. She produced Australia’s Canberra International Music Festival 2008 Sounds Alive series, importing artists from around the world for 10 days of events at the versatile Street Theatre.
Born in Australia, Lisa grew up in Canberra, London and Sydney. She began piano at age 6 and studied formally at the Sydney Conservatorium, University of Illinois, Eastman School of Music, SUNY Stonybrook, and in Paris with Yvonne Loriod-Messiaen. Based in New York City Lisa teaches at Yale-Norfolk Festival New Music Workshop, and has been a regular guest at the Australian Academy of Music, Melbourne.
