About Me

Audience favorite in rounds one and two of the 2015 Cincinnati World Piano Competition, pianist Joseph Stern Kingma has been praised by the Musical Arts Society of New Orleans for his “dazzling technique”, and his interpretation of Liszt’s Sonata in B minor was described as an “especially personal account”. He has won prizes at numerous competitions, including the 2010 Brevard Music Festival Piano Competition, the 2010 Rice University Concerto Competition, and the 2012 Sorantin International Young Artist Competition, and has also competed internationally as a semi-finalist in the 2010 American Paderewski International Piano Competition, the 2011 Concert Artist Guild International Competition, and the 2012 New Orleans International Competition. Mr. Kingma has performed with orchestras across the United States, in addition to masterclass and solo engagements. His 2014-15 season included solo debuts in Dallas, Austin, and Chicago and guest artist appearances with the Manassas Symphony, Brazos Chamber Orchestra, and the Illinois Valley Symphony, among other engagements. Mr. Kingma has taught at the Kingwood Music School and Houston’s First Baptist School of Fine Arts. He was also a judge for the first annual Houston Music Teachers Association Bach-Baroque Festival Competition. Currently he teaches privately out of his home in Pflugerville, TX. Mr. Kingma’s earned his BM and MM from Rice University, were he studied under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Roux. Former teachers include John Mortensen, Aviram Reichert, Philip Pletcher, and Elena Arseniev. He currently studies with Anton Nel at University of Texas at Austin where he is a first-year DMA student.
