I am an experienced piano teacher, teaching from beginner to advanced level. I perform regularly as a soloist and chamber musician and have won many prizes in both national and international piano competitions. I have also completed a PhD at Manchester University, specializing in Beethoven. My book on this subject will appear later this year, and it will be titled 'Beethoven's Dedications: Stories behind the Tributes'. My first album, dedicated entirely to Beethoven piano sonatas, is available on all online streaming platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music and Youtube. Just type 'Artur Pereira Beethoven' and you will be able to listen to it. My second recording, featuring Beethoven's 'Appassionata' piano sonata and piano music by Portuguese composer Luiz Costa, will become available this summer. Look out for it.
