WORKING Talk on the Steps with Tyson Hankins

Elon University Accompanist Tyson Hankins is interviewed by Dr. Susanne Shawyer in a Talk on the Steps for the musical Working,  which is inspired by the Studs Terkel book Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do, 1 May 2016 at the Roberts Studio Theatre. In his interview, Hankins described his work with Elon Performing Arts students at auditions, in classes, in private lessons, and during rehearsals for musicals like Working–and how he spends about five hours a day playing the piano! What he enjoys most about his job as University Accompanist is the collaboration between singer and pianist, as well as the surprisingly diverse musical styles he has learned to play, from Brahms to Lady Gaga.
