Eric Siepkes studied piano performance at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY for his Bachelor of Music Degree, where he was awarded the Howard Hanson Scholarship and the George Eastman Grant. After reading C.P.E. Bach’s Essay on the True Art of Playing Keyboard Instruments, he was inspired to explore early music performance practices and began to study organ and harpsichord as secondary instruments. He later continued his piano performance studies at the Mannes College of Music in NYC with Professor Irina Morozova, his most influential teacher and mentor.
