Leschetizky to Raab

The Juilliard School


Steven Heitman's hands

Let me tell you about my story, about being a pianist. My primary piano performance Professor was Wanda Krasoff. She was recommended by Josef Hofmann to study with Professor Alexander Raab. He studied at the Vienna Conservatory of Music, and his Professor was Leschetizky. He was also good friends with Brahms in Vienna (my Professor showed me the original photo at a piano lesson).

My Professor Krasoff was endorsed by Arthur Rubinstein. I also studied with many other excellent classical piano performance Professors, including my mother—The Juilliard School.

Wanda Krasoff, Pianist and Professor:

If you desire to learn more about me, this is a fuller version of my biography, classical piano background, Professors, and what I do as a pianist. Many of my ideas about classical piano performance were influenced and formed by The Juilliard School, by my Professors (primary Professor, Wanda Krasoff), by my mother, and by Arthur Rubinstein.
