Her professional experience spans the spectrum of a professional pianist: junior to advanced piano pedagogy; concerto appearances with orchestras, recitalist; chamber music; touring soloist; instrumental, choral and vocal accompanying and coaching.
Ms. Bach’s interest in the collaborative arts began during a decade spent as a scholarship student at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. Following her studies at Eastman, Ms. Bach simultaneously pursued two Master of Music degrees, in performance and accompanying, at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA.

Ms. Bach is also featured as a collaborative pianist with Canadian baritone Russell Braun in the Ukrainian Art Song project recordings.
Since 1995 Ms. Bach has been affiliated with the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music.
