An active performer and chamber musician, Edward Neeman plays recitals across the globe, most recently in Spain, Australia and Indonesia. Edward completed his Bachelor of Music degree at the School of Music of the Australian National University, and his Master of Music at the Manhattan School of Music. He has won several prizes in international piano competitions, including first prize in the Joaquin Rodrigo International Competition in Madrid.

Over the past five years, Edward has developed a teaching style to bring out his students' innate musical personalities and develop their appreciation and enjoyment of music. He feels that every student has an intrinsic musical talent, and with careful guidance students will learn to express themselves through their music. Musical training can also help growth and healing in extramusical areas.

As a concert pianist, Edward has coached many aspiring young pianists, and has taught privately in Australia and the United States. Recently he has taught students at the Levine School of Music in Washington DC.
