While I was teaching on faculty in Asia at a University Conservatory my student Stephanie worked with me for one semester and passed her upper divisional piano jury playing among other things a Debussy Etude. This conservatory jury was stricter than most, the faculty enjoyed giving scores in the 60s. While chapel organist and teaching piano I also taught in the theory department at the university and coached.
This photo is of my student Sara. When she came to study with me at Indiana University she was a linguistics major. After studying with me a short time and working on classical repertoire I got her accepted into a multi-competition winner's piano performance studio at IU.
This photo from the Louisiana INTERNATIONAL Piano Competition 2005 is of my student Yuri. A few years AFTER this competition and after she had won a prize in International Chopin competition, she studied with me and took 2nd prize in the difficult IU Concerto Competition (I played Chopin Concerto #1 on the 2nd piano). After studying with me she was also invited to an international festival and was accepted into a European conservatory.
