American pianist Amy Elizabeth Gustafson has performed across the United States and in both Western and Eastern Europe. Born in into a musical family, her talent was evident at an early age, and she received some of her beginning piano instruction from her grandmother. She went on to study with Sandra Polanski in Jackson, Mississippi and worked with John Weems in Houston, Texas, during the summers. By the age of 15, she had won several competitions and her success led her to move to New York City, where she continued her studies at Manhattan School of Music, earning the Bachelor of Music degree under the tutelage of the late pianist and teacher Constance Keene and the Master of Music degree at New York University, where she was a scholarship student of Miyoko Nakaya Lotto. She completed her Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Texas at Austin, studying under pianist Anton Nel and her Professional Studies Certificate at Manhattan School of Music as a student of Andre Michel Schub. Her other major teacher has been Julian Martin at The Juilliard School.

Gustafson has won numerous awards, including the second prize in the International Young Artists Piano Competition, second prize in the Joyce Dutka Arts Foundation Competition, and the Special Presentation Award and the Alumni Award from Artists International Presentations, Inc. In addition, she has participated in the master classes of some of the world's foremost pedagogues including Arie Vardi, Veda Kaplinsky, Bob McDonald, Paul Badura-Skoda, Marc Durand, Martin Canin, Leslie Howard, Dominique Weber, Solomon Mikowsky, and Luiz de Moura Castro and attended summer festivals such as Aspen, Pianofest, the Prague Master Classes, the Gijón International Piano Festival, and the Banff Piano Master Classes.

Currently she enjoys a busy schedule of performing and teaching in the New York area and around the world. Her most recent performances included a ten-recital tour in Texas, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, performances in northern Spain and in Canada, and recitals at Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, Steinway Hall, the Tenri Cultural Institute, CAMI Hall and the Kosciuszko Foundation. She is a Resident Teaching Artist at Bloomingdale School of Music in New York City, the founding Executive Director of The Stony Brook International Piano Festival>/a> in Stony Brook, New York, and the vice president and treasurer of the Spanish American Music Council.

Pianist Amy Gustafson is VP of the Spanish American Music Council, which makes sense, considering her affinity for Spanish and latin composers. Her solo performance yesterday at Trinity Church emphasized this, but it also underscored her originality and sensitivity as an interpreter of both Romantic and 20th century music. What a pleasure to discover a talented player who doesn’t fit the cookie-cutter mold.
