Here are the program notes, examiner review, and some audio excerpts from my Diploma in Piano Performance recital. I researched and prepared a program whose underlying theme was pedagogy and experimentation in keyboard repertoire from the 1720s to the 1980s.

Even if I haven't performed seriously in a long while, this Diploma remains one of my most significant accomplishments—the culmination of a journey that began when I was 7, and a fascinating way for me to explore the power of learning as a cognitive phenomenon and creative process.
