He was the oldest student ever getting accepted to Istanbul State Conservatory’s Piano Performance Department. After his training in the conservatory, he studied with pianist Huseyin Sermet in Paris which made him understand the important difference between studying in a “school” vs. with a master musician outside of “school”. With this inspiration, he found his unique technique for teaching piano, which is based on creating a personal connection between the listener/player and the music.

Apart from his solo recitals and chamber music concerts, Emir Gamsizoglu is known with his interdisciplinary projects about classical music like “Chatty Pianist Series” “Unwritten on the Scores”, “Drama in Beethoven”, and “Chopin’s Birthday Party”.

Emir G has been teaching piano for the last 15 years. Because of his extraordinary story, he is a unique teacher especially for adults. His music appreciation series under Classical for All are getting attention both in his homeland Istanbul where he travels often for concerts, and in New York where he currently resides.
