Classical pianist - introducing myself
« on: March 11, 2018, 03:25:34 PM »
Dear all,

I’m a classical pianist living in NYC.
I teach a few classes at the Manhattan School of Music, where I am working on my doctorate degree in piano.
I’ve earned my Masters in Piano at Juilliard where I studied with Lowenthal and Raekallio - and Bachelors of Music at Mannes where I studied with Jerome Rose.

Please take a look at my new youtube channel and perhaps subscribe if you like what you hear, as new content will be added regularly.

All my recordings are unedited.
All the best,
M.K.

I would extend a welcome, but I’m afraid your purpose here appears to be entirely for self-promotion or am I wrong? What do you say mods?

Warmest welcome, mkaykov! Most of us, with some notable exceptions, can only play our CDs, let alone a Liszt etude.

Not at all, I am just rather proud of my recent recordings!

From a person whose only musical accomplishment after eight years of futile piano lessons is that I can put a bassoon together, self-promote away  ;)

That is not very welcoming. What better way to introduce yourself other than to show your skills and innate knowledge through performance?
I extend my welcome as a new member too

Welcome Michael and Mark -- much to explore here, and hope you have a good time doing it. Also, we do have a number of people here who play -- amateurs, professionals, and semi-professionals -- so you'll be in good company.
