László is a musicologist, psychologist and musician. He works at the Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest, and at the University of Szeged and, on two occasions, has been a Visiting Fellow at the University of Cambridge and at Downing College (Cambridge). His research in traditional musicology focuses on Bartók (analysis and performance), in music psychology on emotional communication in music performance, and in music pedagogy on developing effective and creative working and instrumental practice methods. Over the past few years, he has been involved in a countrywide planning of music education curricula across Hungary, including the National Core Curriculum and conservatoire curricula. As a pianist and chamber musician, he has performed in several European countries and the US, and conducts attentional skills training workshops (based on his Practice Methodology) and chamber music coaching sessions at international masterclasses both in Hungary and abroad, including in Britain at King’s College London, and in Italy, at the Santa Cecilia Conservatoire, Rome.
