Aaron Petit, Pianist

“As a child, I was never exposed to classical music. The first piece I ever heard was Horowitz Playing Chopin’s Polonaise in A-Flat at Age 12. It was then that I started to play the piano. Ten years later, at age 22, I have managed to largely catch up with the others in my field who started at age 3-8. Yet, I often wish I would have known about the world of Classical Music at a younger age. I wonder where I would have been today, with an additional 5 or more years of experience already. What is so amazing about GetClassical In School, is that Mrs. Oltuski is providing the very opportunity to the youth that I wish I would have had as a child- getting exposure to the greatest music ever written, performed at an immensely high level. I am so honored and excited to be a part of this organization and continue the legacy of the great composers by inspiring the next generation to appreciate and perform classical music.”
