- Long Island, NY, USA
Audrey Schneider was a scholarship student of Jakob Gimpel and Isabelle Vengerova, but her most significant studies have been with Dorothy Taubman and Edna Golandsky. She presented the Taubman Approach at the Westchester Musicians Guild, the Association of Piano Teachers of Long Island, and the European Congress of Arts Medicine, in Munich, 1994, and Berlin, 1998. She served as a member of the faculty of the Taubman Piano Institute from 1995 to 2002, and has been a faculty member of the Golandsky Institute since its inception.
Ms. Schneider received the Master of Arts degree in solo performance from the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, where she also completed the Bachelor of Arts degree summa cum laude. A guest performance with the CBS-TV Concert Orchestra, under the baton of Alfredo Antonini, led to an invitation to create and perform four televised programs for children, which explored classical music and dance. She has performed regularly in solo and duo piano recitals, as well as in collaboration with singers and instrumentalists, at Queens College, Brandeis University, Williams College, Princeton University, the Nassau County Celebration of the Arts, and at the Bethpage, Massapequa, Long Beach, and Shelter Rock Public Libraries, as well as at Steinway Hall in New York City.
Audrey Schneider maintains her private teaching studio in West Hempstead, New York.
