James Marchand (Piano)

Born: January 19, 1955 - County, California, USA

The American pianist and composer, James (Richard) Marchand, began piano lessons at age 7. His principal teachers were Dr. S. Drummond Wolfe, Herbert Inskip, Dr. Frank Marks and Samuel Lipman.

James Marchand has appeared in concert as a soloist, as a chamber musician, and as an instrumental and vocal accompanist. His discography includes Mozart Piano Sonatas, Scriabin Sonatas 1-4, French Piano Music, and Mozart, Skryabin and Franz Liszt.

James Marchand currently lives in Novato, California, with his wife, Claire. He is also author of textbooks on piano playing and recently: Introduction to Piano Technique which was written with the intermediate piano student in mind. The book and the accompanying DVD explain and show fundamentals of piano technique and is written in a clear, concise language suitable for a piano student. Each chapter includes exercises which give the student practice in the skills covered by the chapter.

"I am impressed by the performances of Scriabin. James plays with a big, rich tone, and with beautiful expression. I was particularly moved by the lovely performance of the left-hand nocturne--the best rendition of this difficult work that I have ever heard." - James M. Baker, Professor of Music, Brown University
