I'm excited this very first month to present you
Emile was one of those professors I shared nice email correspondence with both prior and post our actual meeting. In his classroom, he shared some of his travel and concert experiences - i was especially fond of watching concert pictures with him and the Danish Queen (I'm Danish in case you wonder 😉 )
Emile Naoumoff is piano professor at the prestigious conservatory "Jacobs School of Music" in Bloomington, Indiana. Former student of no less than Nadia Boulanger! (see for yourself in this Video).
