ABOUT THE ARTIST:


Pianist Jake Holtzman comes from San Rafael, California, and currently lives in New York City.
He has performed in many venues throughout the United States with recent engagements
bringing him to Old St. Mary’s Cathedral for San Francisco’s Noontime Concerts, St. Paul’s
Chapel at Columbia University, the San Francisco Steinway Piano Gallery, the Kalamazoo Epic
Center, and the Avram Theater in Southampton, NY. Jake has garnered several awards
recognizing his work, including the NYU Walter Reinhold Scholarship, the Gilmore Master
Class Fellowship, and the Oberlin Piano Faculty Prize in Accompanying.

Jake also frequently performs as a collaborative pianist, and is a staff accompanist for the Lucy
Moses School and for NYU Steinhardt’s Double Reed Department. In Summer 2018, Jake was
among a small group of pianists selected to intern at the Castleman Quartet Program, where he
collaborated and performed with many of the festival students in addition to faculty members
Charles Castleman, Thomas Landschoot, and Csaba Erdélyi.

A passionate and experienced teacher, Jake teaches for The Browning School, Rubato Music
School, Music to Your Home, and has taught as an adjunct piano instructor at NYU.
Jake completed his master’s degree in piano performance at NYU Steinhardt, where he studied
with Eteri Andjaparidze. He did his undergraduate studies at Oberlin College & Conservatory,
completing a B.M. in Piano Performance and a B.A. in Environmental Studies. Past piano
teachers have included Peter Takács, John McCarthy, Peter Horvath, and Adam Domash. Jake
has also participated in master classes given by distinguished pianists such as András Schiff,
Natalya Antonova, and John O’Conor.

In addition to his experience as a classical pianist, Jake also plays jazz, having performed both as
a solo jazz pianist and as a member of many jazz combos. While not playing the piano, Jake
enjoys cooking, and also devotes time to activism for various human rights causes.
