Get ready for a captivating new episode of The Piano Pod featuring none other than Walter Aparicio! I had an incredible time recording this upcoming TPP episode with Walter – a talented Pianist, Educator, and Founder/President of the Foundation for Bolivian Artists ( Our connection dates back to our NYU graduate school days in 2007, and delving into Walter’s journey and future plans was both meaningful and emotional.

Ahead of his time, he has been a passionate supporter of diversity in music, particularly focusing on Latin American music and composers since the late 2000s, well before the recent emphasis on diversity in 2020.
