Classical Pianist | music & career coaching
Technique & Artistry
Hello! I am a classically trained pianist, currently pursuing a doctorate at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. While my priority (and first love!) is music, I've also spent a lot of my time in academia dedicated to enhancing my teaching and performance with related industries. As such, I also hold a BA in psychology and minor concentrations in business, entrepreneurship, music education, and arts leadership.
About performance: I made my orchestral debut with the Saint Petersburg State Symphony in Russia at the age of nine (I know, I was that kid) and have gone on to perform with many orchestras across the US, including the Louisville Symphony and the Chicago Ars Viva Symphony. My awards include first place at the Cincinnati World Piano Competition, grand prize at the Delta Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Competition, and the Joseph Shelhardt Award at the Hellam Young Artist Competition. As a soloist, I have played at Lincoln Center, the Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace, and Carnegie Hall. All this is a very long-winded way of saying: I've been doing this for a very long time, and I hope to have insightful things to say if you have questions about artistry, technique, learning process, memorization, or anything else related to the piano.
About all the things outside performance: I've made it my mission to broaden access to music-- the classical world can be very narrow but there's no doubt that the training and knowledge that it has can benefit any musician in any genre. Some organizations that I have worked with in service of this goal include National Public Radio's "From the Top," the San Francisco Opera Education Department, and the Pasadena Symphony & Pops. I'm grateful for stepping into the world of business, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship and the comprehensive view it's given me on what's expected and needed of musicians today. If you've ever wondered what musicians can do to actually monetize their careers, how to use social media to further your artistic brand, or even what options there are out there for career (and what you need to prepare in order to get there!), I would love to offer support.

I'm a musician working with an ever-changing array of genres, instruments, and practices, currently based in Chicago. Coming from a background in jazz and sound design, I try to discover how people, places, and technologies can have unique musical interactions, working as an active freelancer and cultural organizer who believes in the power and importance of seeking the unusual.

Hi! I am a professional musician, composer and tutor with 20 years actual teaching/mentoring behind me. Teaching and artist development is a deep passion for me, not just a "sideline" job, to "top-up" my other work ;-)
My name is Kevin Edge.
Classically trained on piano from the age of 7, and later complementing this groundwork with studying and playing jazz and other contemporary forms (pop/rock/funk/fusion/electronic/singer-songwriter etc), I have centred my life on the study, creation and performance of music in many different forms: piano, electric/acoustic guitar and clarinet, playing in bands, performing solo, songwriting, composition and production for TV and film/trailer music (including hybrid cinematic/orchestral), electronic music of all kinds, mixing and mastering, along with teaching, offering guidance and mentoring across all of these areas both privately and in college settings, including lecturing at the JMC Academy (counterpart to SAE) in Melbourne, Australia.
I work with clients to develop their mixing, mastering, singing. playing, composition, songwriting, production and applied music theory knowledge/skills, in order to progress their musicianship and empower them on their musical journey, be it as a career, or simply for their own personal creativity/expression etc.
I can guide and feedback across all these areas/layers, and draw links/connections between them, which can provide a powerful springboard for musical development, all in one place. Alternatively the feedback can be very focussed on one particular aspect, as the client wishes.
