A Virtual Event

About the Event

Participating in a piano competition can be considered anything from a worthy goal to a pianist's worst nightmare. Most pianists can place themselves somewhere on this continuum. 

AmateurPianists is pleased to announce our first-ever virtual event, showcasing John Gutheil, a longtime AmateurPianists member, who has competed in both the 2016 and 2019 AmateurPianists’ International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs, as well as the Cliburn Amateur Competition and a few others. He will share his journey in preparing for a competition, his practice schedules, expectations and perhaps most importantly, understanding why he chose to do this on top of a busy day job running a biotech company. 

He will also share a few pieces from his competition videos and will answer questions in real time.

It will be webcast from our YouTube channel and will be free for all to watch. No password required, nothing to download! 

Thank you and stay healthy,
