Pianist Craig Addy discusses his unique method and approach to playing the piano.
Craig Addy is a pianist, composer, improviser, and teacher. He holds a performer’s A.R.C.T. from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and a B.Mus. from the University of British Columbia. Craig has a passionate belief in the power of beauty and his primary expression of that is through music. Craig is unusual in that he’s a classically trained pianist who loves to improvise. There’s nothing as intoxicating and mysterious as what happens when spontaneously improvising music. He’s also fascinated by sound and the science behind sound as he explores the physics of sound and the emotional, aesthetic, and psychological elements of music by creating new and unique environments in which to experience music. His “Under the Piano” sound spa and weekly Music Oasis performances with the Quiet Hearts Ensemble both provide new contexts in which to experience music.
