The holder of a PhD in Performance Practice from the Royal Academy of Music (University of London), Jeremy Eskenazi is a sought-after soloist, teacher, chamber musician, scholar and adjudicator. In 2015, the Governing Body of the Royal Academy of Music elected Jeremy 'Associate of the Royal Academy of Music' (ARAM) together with his wife, Australian composer Alicia Grant, for a 'significant contribution to the music profession'.
Jeremy loves to transmit his passion for classical music through teaching committed students as well as keen music lovers who would like to brush up on their piano skills. He firmly believes that optimal, relaxed and friendly communication between student and teacher is key to the success of teaching and accompanying.
Jeremy's extended performances as soloist and accompanist have made him a popular accompanist for exams and auditions, particularly at diploma level. Before settling in Sydney in 2008, he performed, among others, at the Festival Chopin in Paris, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Saint-Martin-in-the-Fields in London, the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, and the Istanbul Opera House. In 2011, the record company Divine Art released his CD Rainlight: Evocations of Water for piano solo, distributed worldwide by Naxos.
In 2018, Jeremy is on the casual list for Music Performance Teaching at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. In 2014 and 2017, he adjudicated the Sydney Eisteddfod competition, and in 2009, he adjudicated the Southern Highlands International Piano Competition in Bowral, New South Wales.
