In April, 2010, Justin Ramos (Senior, Instrumental Studies and Composition) presented one of his own compositions, Four Pieces for Piano, on the Department of Music's Soloists' Recital in Murphy Recital Hall.
In each of this work's four movements, Justin gave himself an interesting compositional challenge by limiting the number of pitches he could use to just five: B, C, E-flat, F-sharp, and G. Prelude Scherzo.
Justin is currently preparing for his Senior piano recital, scheduled for spring 2011. At LMU he studies piano with Dr. Wojciech Kocyan and composition with Dr. Mark Saya.
Beyond LMU Justin is very active as a composer and performer.
