Margaret Wacyk is a trailblazer who is breathing new life into the art of piano playing.
As a soloist, Margaret has concertized in the United States and Europe and made her Carnegie Hall solo debut in 2000.
A prolific recording artist, her CD, “Piano Works” was chosen as Gramophone Magazine’s “Best New Releases from North America”.
Margaret has had a lifelong fascination with the power of sound and its ability to transform.
It began with her interest in capturing the secret behind the 'golden tone' that pianists from the 19th and early 20th century possessed.
This quest led her to an archived 19th century method, which she has researched with over twenty years of relentless exploration.
As a result of these experiences, she authored a groundbreaking book called Ultimate Piano Playing and companion online course that has taught pianists around the world how to play with natural technique, get rid of muscular tension and obtain rich and effortless tone at the piano.
Margaret started Music To Compose You to start a conversation about classical music.
- What is at the heart of this marvelous music?
- Why did the composer write it?
- Why is it relevant to us today?
Behind great music is a story that has yet to be told.
She tells it using music and words.
Classical music has a special way of touching our hearts and is the universal language of love. It also imparts wisdom and can make our lives better just by taking a few minutes to listen.
Her passion is to share this beauty to people from all walks of life and add some positive sounds back into the world.
