(scroll down for links) Joining me here is Israeli concert pianist, composer, pedagogue, and bestselling author Rami Bar-Niv. 

As usual, we have included some of Rami's incredible piano solos in this episode. And we will learn about how he created an international solo concert career! Rami came from a musical family with a composer father and a piano-teacher mother. He started writing music as early as age 6! But the dedication required for his piano playing superseded his composition days until later in life.  There are some fun stories and anecdotes from this musical family you will find during our chat.    

So.... what does a concert pianist think about practicing? The answer may surprise you! The preparation of a concert pianist and how to create a self-managed international concert career!    

What is Rami's teaching philosophy, especially given that he's written a book on piano teaching? You might find it surprising as well!   

"Art imitates life, and life imitates art."  Rami's musical life is closely tied to his personal life through travels, joy, and tragedies. The stories are recorded in his compositions.   

You won't want to miss the stories behind each of the stunning performances/compositions featured in this piece!
