Erik Azzopardi

Erik Azzopardi graduated from Trinity College of Music (London) in Piano Performance in 2005. He also holds an undergraduate degree in Music Studies from the University of Malta. During his years in Malta, his country of birth, Azzopardi studied with Loranne Debono, Rita and Joe Psaila and Prof. Michael Laus. At Trinity he had the opportunity to study under Simon Young, and has had had lessons with Mikhail Kazakevich, Stephen Kovacevich and William Aide. He is currently undertaking further piano study at Morley College.

During his student years Azzopardi gave recitals and accompanied musicians and singers in Malta, London, Turkey and Tunisia. He attended the ECUME conference in Istanbul in 2001 and worked with Maltese composers Joe Vella and the late Charles Camilleri. In 2002-2003 he co-organised the second series of Windows on Music, a series of monthly concerts showcasing the talent at the Music Department of the University of Malta, supported by the Manoel Theatre and the Malta Tourism Authority. Currently, Azzopardi is working as a pianist in ballet schools whilst developing as a performer. His interest in other genres of music has led him to collaborations with non-classical artists, most significantly with Jyoshna La Trobe. The pair have recently had success in the 2011 Live and Unsigned competition. Azzopardi is also developing his interests in yoga and meditation, teaching weekly classes in north London.
