Stephanie A. Emberley, pianist, began her classical piano training at the age of three, giving her first solo concert at the age of fifteen. She has taught at James Madison University and Gordon College. She enjoys an active career as soloist, collaborative pianist, and teacher. Her performances have taken her throughout the United States, Canada, France, and Australia. Stephanie received her doctorate from James Madison University and has studied with many fine teachers including Sara Whitehouse, David Lehman, George Loring, Jr., Eric Ruple, and Lori Piitz.

In both 2008 and 2009, Ms. Emberley won the New Hampshire MTNA Young Artists' competition and was selected as a finalist in the Philharmonic Society of Arlington's Young Artists' Concerto Competition. She has received numerous scholarships and awards for her performances, including the Waldo and Alice Ayer Music Performance scholarship and the Eubie Blake Performance scholarship. Hearing about these performances, the Harvard Faculty Club invited Ms. Emberley to perform an all-Chopin recital as the highlight of their Christmas Banquet. She has also been invited to Keene State College to present a lecture-recital on Robert Schumann's Piano Sonata in F-sharp minor, op. 11. In 2013, Ms. Emberley was the recipient of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Scholarship as well as the Anna Sosenko Assist Trust Grant.

Ms. Emberley particularly enjoys organizing and performing concerts that allow for audience interaction. House concerts, school performances, and events such as James Madison University's Middle School Visit Program allow for this and enhance the audience's understanding of the music. Ms. Emberley has performed with such distinguished artists as Courtney Huffman, Madeleine Able-Kerns, Cornelia Schwartz, Robert Dick, Elise Rauschenbach, and the Monadnock Brass. Many of her concerts have been to raise funds for local organizations and charities, such as the Peterborough Children in the Arts, Rivermeade, the Good Shepherd Nursing Home, Pine Hill, Willow Rise, and the Easter Seals. She recently collaborated on a "Collaborative Tradition" lecture masterclass for the Gordon College Symposium Day with soprano Courtney Huffman.

Ms. Emberley often serves as an adjudicator and offers lectures and masterclasses, and she is in the process of completing her Master Instructor certification in the Lister-sink Method of piano technique and injury retraining. She blogs about her experiences and practicing in order to provide her students additional advice outside of their lessons.
