About Augustus

I hold degrees in piano performance from the Boston Conservatory (BM), University Of Michigan (MM), and Cornell University (DMA), where I completed my doctorate in 2006. Since that time, I have been living in central NJ, teaching privately and in universities, and maintaining an active performing career in New York City. I have concertized extensively as a solo artist and as pianist in the contemporary music ensemble that I direct. My primary specialization is modern music, but I also studied historical performance practice and period instruments as part of my doctorate. I have received critical acclaim for recent performances, including being named to NY Classical Review's Top Ten classical performances of 2015.

I have a great deal of experience teaching students of all age levels and abilities. I have taught at the college level at Cornell, University of Binghamton, and New York University. And I have maintained a private studio for over ten years in NJ, teaching K through 12 as well as adults with an interest in learning the piano or continuing their early training. I have had several students successfully audition for college music programs and perform well in local competitions and auditions.

I have an extensive education background at some of the premiere music programs in the country. Furthermore, I have explored a number of specialist areas of music including very recent music. I have collaborated with many living composers and commissioned and premiered a large slate of new works. These experiences set me somewhat apart from many pianist who only have experience with the standard classical repertoire, as taught in universities. I am an active practicing artist, and can inspire my students as to the potential for art to make a real impact in the world.

I am accepting private students either for lessons in my home studio on my excellent Steinway grand piano or in your homes. Contact me today for a free trial lesson.
