Known for her subtlety and flexibility as a performer, Rose Lachman's artistry at the piano is balanced by her engagement with solo and collaborative repertoire, her work with new music and contemporary composers, an active teaching and performing schedule, and a strong pedagogical background.
In addition to her work as a performer, Dr. Lachman has trained pianists privately since 1999. Her pedagogical research, culminating in her dissertation titled "Functional Skills: An Examination and Reworking of the Undergraduate Curriculum," informs her individual and group teaching. She plans to expand this research into a textbook.
Rose Lachman earned her doctorate from the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she studied with David Korevaar. During this time, she taught keyboard skills, collaborated with the choral area, and coordinated the continuing education music program. She received her M.M. summa cum laude from California State University at Northridge with Dmitry Rachmanov, where she was asked to serve as teaching assistant for keyboard skills, collaborative pianist with the winds department, and coach for the solo piano performance area. She graduated cum laude from Scripps College in 2005, and spent 2005-2008 collaborating with their vocal department.
Dr. Lachman currently resides in Colorado.
