“If a composer could say what he had to say in words, he would not bother trying to say it in music.”
Gustav Mahler

If you are advanced pianist or young professional, preparing for an audition, recital or competition you may be interested in the following programs that the Academy can offer:
  • In-person Consultation. For the prepared repertoire, for up to 90 minutes of music. 
  • Online Consultation. You can send the recording of yours (recording from mobile device cannot be accepted due to poor audio quality), and within 36-72 hours you will receive a list of objective comments with a bar numbers for an easy track of feedback.
  • Concerto Consultation. Our comments will give you better ideas on how to be more in control of the collaboration, and enjoy the performance, which will make the music shine even more. This option may be also helpful if you plan to participate in a concerto competition at your school.
If you are currently enrolled in a degree program, Congratulations! as it is needless to say that you are guided by a highly respected and accomplished musician. Listed services are only meant to provide an additional set of ears and opinion on what you’ve worked on during the countless hours of practicing. Some of the benefits are:
  • You will get an extra chance to get nervous, which would increase confidence at the time of an actual performance.
  • You will receive objective feedback, based on score markings and composer’s background.
  • Optionally, you will receive subjective feedback on interpretational matter.
Let us stress it out – if you are currently enrolled in the program, studying with a faculty of an institution and interested in Professional Consulting at JMA, information that we can provide, must be perceived as an extra food for thought, and not to disregard your own ideas or your teacher’s recommendations.
