Unlike life, playing the piano is easy and doesn’t hurt. This mantra has carried Neil Stannard through what might seem to others like several lifetimes—performing as a collaborative pianist, occasional soloist, symphony bassist and, through it all, a dedicated teacher. He has performed in international venues with such artists as David Shifrin, Hermann Baumann, Eugenia Zuckerman, Leona Mitchell, Clamma Dale and Christiane Edinger, appearing in all 48 of the contiguous United States, across Canada and in many of Europe’s important concert centers from London to Moscow, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the White House, Vienna’s Musikverein, Berlin’s Hochschule and Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow. He has taken part in the Great Performers at Lincoln Center series, the Berlin Festival, the Vienna Festival, Tage Neue Musik (Bonn), Marlboro and the Newport Festival. After graduating cum laude from the University of Southern California (Bach. of Mus.), a scholarship student of Muriel Kerr, he received a Naumberg scholarship to play double bass at the Juilliard School (M.S.), during which time he performed in the American Symphony with Leopold Stokowski and in the Marlboro Festival Orchestra with Pablo Casals (Columbia Records). It was also during this time that he made his New York recital debut at Carnegie Recital Hall as a pianist with violinist Christiane Edinger. Later, he studied piano on a German government grant with Gerhard Puchelt at the Hochschule für Musik in Berlin, completed a doctorate in piano at the University of Arizona with Nicholas Zumbro and for 13 years taught graduate and undergraduate piano at the University of Texas at El Paso, where he was a tenured professor. He is the author of "Piano Technique Demystified: Insights into Problem Solving."
