While we live in a community that greatly appreciates all local talents (Thank you, Mid-Missouri!!), it is still wonderful to receive raving acknowledgements from out of town, as seen in a recent Fanfare magazine. Please take a moment to read this article. It is not every day that you come across someone who actively performs as much as Dr. Peter Miyamoto, while maintaining a successful studio as a university professor.
You see, his former protege, pianist Hyunki Yoon - who is currently pursuing DMA at University of Missouri-Kansas City - ALSO won top prizes (plural) in the same competition in different categories. This is only one of many testaments to Peter's tremendous dedication of the highest quality, both as a teacher and as a musician.
Here's the link to Fanfare Magazine Review:

That includes an interview with MU School of Music faculty member and concert pianist Peter Miyamoto. He recently placed in the running for The American Prize. Next Tuesday evening on KBIA, the pianist discusses his influences and shares some advice for beginning students. Then on the program, Paul Crabb shares what it is about Verdi's Requiem that gets over 200 Columbians to meet every Thursday this fall to rehearse the choral masterpiece.
