    Introduction
    Pianist and composer, Patrick Stoyanovich, brings a rich musical experience to contemporary culture. Educated from age nine as a pianist and horn player, Mr. Stoyanovich was honored numerous times as outstanding soloist while still a teenager and began to perform as a professional pianist by age fourteen. Composition developed innately from his experiences as a performer and improviser.

    My Teaching Background
    His formal education began at The University of Michigan School of Music graduating with a Bachelor’s of Arts specializing in Piano Performance. He was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Jazz studying with noted New York City jazz pianist Richard Beirach. During this time, Mr. Stoyanovich also won the international competition: John W. Work III Prize for Composition.

    Mr. Stoyanovich continued his education at Yale University School of Music as a student of Jacob Druckman and was awarded the Irving Gilmore Fellowship for the Outstanding Composition Student and the John Day Jackson Prize for Chamber Music. He graduated from Yale with the graduate degree of Master’s of Composition with High Honors.

    For post-graduate work, Mr. Stoyanovich studied at Le Academie des Americaines Conservatoire de Musique in Fontainebleau, France on a composition scholarship. There, he had the honor of studying in a select composition seminar lead by noted American musician Leonard Bernstein. Mr. Stoyanovich’s composition teachers include three Pulitzer Prize winners: William Bolcom, Jacob Druckman and Leslie Basset as well as other noted American musicians such as Gunther Schuller.


    My Teaching Philosophy
    My approach is one on one. I look for students that are sincerely interested in music. I teach piano (classical and jazz), composition and improvisation.
