Known for his elegant and insightful musicality, Jean-Yves Thibaudet has established himself as an iconic figure both on and off the stage. For more than three decades, he’s traveled the globe as one of the world’s most sought after concert pianists with a style distinctly his own.

For Thibaudet, teaching reaches beyond simple instruction. It also represents the continuation of a valuable tradition.

He believes having a strong understanding of the fundamentals is only half of the journey. Of equal importance is helping students find their own voice and individuality.

Thibaudet is renowned as an artist not just because of how he plays, but also because he plays well with others. His collaborative and good-spirited nature help him build and maintain relationships in the field, and he hopes to impart this knowledge to students.

He is currently an Artist in Residence at the Colburn School.
