Renee REZNEK - Teacher Profile

About Me

<span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">
<div style="text-align: justify;">
<div style="text-align: justify;">I have 30 years of experience teaching children, undergraduates at Cambridge University, and adults with excellent results. My own recitals consist of music from the 20th and 21st centuries, including many first performances. However my training was grounded in traditional repertoire.&nbsp;</div>
<div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div>
<div style="text-align: justify;">My teachers were Adolf Hallis (a Schnabel pupil), Lamar Crowson, Gyorgy Sandor (a Bartok pupil) and Susan Bradshaw.<br /></div>
<div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div>
<div style="text-align: justify;">It is important to me that the lives of my students are enhanced by making music whatever their ability. Whilst I am a serious teacher, I prefer a relaxed and humorous atmosphere so that the discipline of study is a pleasure which enhances confidence and wellbeing.<br /><br />My CD with music by<span style="line-height: 115%; font-family: "><span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp;</span>Jan&aacute;&#269;ek</span>, Debussy, Messiaen David Earl and Stravinsky was reviewed in Fanfare magazine:<br /><br />"Pianist Renee Reznek's affinity for her chosen repertoire, maturity of conception and superb technical command can be heard in every note of this highly polished ,yet intimate, recital." <br /><br />Fanfare's May/June 2013 issue&nbsp;has&nbsp;the CD on the cover and an in-depth interview with me as well.

(The American Record Guide)<br /><br />I have recently returned from a tour of South Africa playing pieces by SA composers which I am now recording.These include Hade Tata in tribute to Mandela by Neo Muyanga.Forthcoming concerts are in London and Toronto.</p>
