Peter Rudzik, a Master of Music in piano performance from the Academy of Music in Gdansk, has won many awards in Poland, where he was born. In 1984 a scholarship from the Chopin Society in Warsaw led to numerous recitals and appearances on national television and radio. Of special acclaim was a performance at the National Piano Festival in 1987. In 1989 Peter received a scholarship for post graduate studies at the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen, Denmark. Peter's love of teaching soon led to a position teaching piano at the Mount Royal University Conservatory in Calgary, and his own private studio. Many of his students, which cover all levels from beginners to the licentiate, have achieved top levels of excellence both provincially and nationally.
His collection for children Truly Astounding Animals was very well received internationally with excellent reviews in International Piano, The Canadian Music Teacher, Tempo and The American Music Teacher.
The International Piano magazine published "Hot Springs" which is part of the Wild Rose Suite, in its 2015 January/February issue. It was the subject of a piano competition for a best recording organized by the magazine.
International Piano also featured two pieces from The Book of Piano Magic in its 2017 January - February issue, "A Troll's Rag" and "An Ogre and a Mermaid".
Many of Rudzik's pieces are included in the piano syllabi of Royal
Conservatory of Music, Conservatory Canada, Trinity College, UK and NFMC, USA.
