Justin Levitt is an award-winning pianist and composer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Justin wasn’t interested in the piano until he heard a friend play two pieces: Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven and an original composition. That moment inspired him to learn to play the piano and start composing. He was 15. Since that day, he has written hundreds of pieces, published ten volumes of piano solos, won seven MTAC state competition awards, performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, composed symphonies, wrote music for the Diablo Ballet used on stage and in short films, won a gold Telly Award for best music, released “Bootleg the Movie”, a film of four-hand piano improvisations, was published in the Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) syllabus, wrote two piano duets published by FJH Music, raised a family, worked full time at Steinway & Sons as General Manager of Northern California, and rode the emotional rollercoaster one might expect from life itself and all of the above. Justin is truly happy and lives a blessed life. He has an amazing family filled with love and support, who are his inspiration and center! Justin is thankful every day for the gifts he has been given and continues to do his best to share them with the world.

"When I hear music I see images which tell a story. It has been like this as far back as I can remember so it should come as no big surprise that I would one day stumble upon a path in life (an art form) which includes imagery and music. Justin has written a collection of pieces for us with a breadth and range as wide as that of life itself; from the whimsical to the introspectively serious, the tempestuous to the calmness of an early morning sea after a great storm. And why shouldn't he have done so? After all, his music comes from a life being lived; a real life. Listen to his music, play his music, and enjoy the work of a master artist, craftsman, and performer. But be prepared for a world of imagery to begin to appear as you do so, inviting you to beautiful, exciting worlds you may never have dreamed of before."

TEAM MEMBER - JUSTIN LEVITT
Composer - The more fun side (that's debatable)
This is the guy that has to juggle everything. From the writing, orchestrating, marketing, etc. etc. He's forced to make the hard decisions like, which notes sound the best with the other notes he's using or, at times, just figure out which notes not to use. He's got a heavy burden on his shoulders but he carries it well.

Performer - The more serious side
This guy gives everything in concert and can often be seen afterwards wondering what just happened. Its been said that he takes his listeners on not only a emotional journey but a visual one as well.
