Comments About Pianophoria!


The group was just great - people share their music, their experience, difficulties and insecurities - we are all in the same boat.

Thanks again for a memorable week of total immersion in pianoforte … it was a little slice of heaven!

I had no idea I would enjoy the experience so much, in particular getting to know all of you pianophorians. … I am absolutely inspired to play more and better piano.

I had an especially wonderful time at Pianophoria this past week, and I really appreciated your support, and the musical and practical advice about the Chopin and the Schubert. And what a great group this year!

I loved every bit of Pianophoria! this year ... I found the individual lessons most helpful to me in my playing, although the practice time was a necessary accompaniment to that. And the lectures and master class were a pure joy. Where did you find such amazing lecturers? I think what I liked best was the total balance of musical engagement during the week, which made every day pass too quickly.

Pianophoria! was an unforgettable experience: altogether, the intense concentration on practicing, the teachers (one better than the other), and, of course, the atmosphere — a group of people of all walks of life, different ages, different levels, and yet, all with one thing in common: their love of the piano and of music in general. I learned a lot more than just the fact that I did have the stamina to practice four hours a day.

I can't compliment you highly enough about what a great atmosphere you've created over the years. I believe this was my third Pianophoria! ... and I marvel at your ability to create a warm, supportive community that challenges both the most advanced pianists as well as the beginners, while leaving no one out. The quality of the individual lessons is superb, and the balance of lectures, master classes, videos, etc. is superb. You have created something special...

What a wonderful experience! Thank you for all you did to make it meaningful. For me, it is the coming together of people who love music, and who love people who love music, that makes it wonderful.

The week at Pianophoria! was one of the best and most stimulating weeks in many, many years. The coaching, the classes, the lectures opened a totally new musical horizon for me allowing me to learn and enjoy music which until then I thought I didn't like and actually had dismissed!
    Vera, 2012
Was wonderful and over too soon. Thanks for everything that you do for all of us.
    Richard, 2012
The program is very well run. It couldn't be done better!
    Yvonne, 2011
What was especially helpful to you and to your piano playing?
The distinct perspectives that each of you bring in the lessons. Very rewarding week. Thank you.
    John, 2011
Well, everything I heard, I observed, turned out to be quite considerable benefits for me, and almost every single moment! THANK YOU! I would consider about flying back even from Japan to attend another Pianophoria! week in the future.

The teaching was a gift. I found myself hearing the music I've played so often in new and different ways, and even pieces I thought I was getting bored with suddenly seemed fresh and compelling.
    Alexis, 2006
The experience was informative, fun, inspirational, fun, challenging, fun, supportive, did I mention fun?
    Ellin, 2004
Overall this workshop was much, much more than I expected. After having worked on my own for a number of years, I was feeling stagnant and without direction. The workshop has provided just the impetus I need to continue my studies.

It was wonderful to immerse myself in music for the week. I felt that I could shut off the world and really concentrate on learning, feeling and expressing music ... I must say the week inspired me. Usually I sit and practice for 1/2 hour and jump up to do the million things that could be done. Today, I practiced 45 mins and then kept stealing time from other things and practiced at least three more 15 min. periods. It didn't feel a bit too long. Don't know if this will stick but for now it's great.

You, Thomas and Vladimir were a wonderful team. I asked ... how there could be three such sympathetic teachers in one place. You worked together beautifully, from what we saw. Your enthusiasm and encouragement were felt throughout the week ... I really loved hearing everyone play on Sunday. It was so touching to hear how we all were trying to incorporate what we had heard all week. Everyone seemed to overcome something in themselves to play.
