Owen Dodds is a first year graduate student at Boston University, where he studies piano performance with Professor Gila Goldstein. He began his official music studies as an eighth grader in the high school program at the UNC School of the Arts. He first received instruction from Clifton Matthews but later continued with Dr. Dmitri Shteinberg to receive his high school diploma and his Bachelor of Music degree.

Dodds has won top prizes in competitions such as the UNCSA Concerto Competition, Rosen-Schaffel Young Artist Competition, Baltimore International Piano Festival Competition, and Music Teacher’s National Association Southeastern division. He has appeared as a concerto soloist with the UNCSA Symphony Orchestra and the National Honoured Academic Orchestra of Ukraine. As a result of winning the Baltimore International Piano Festival Competition, Dodds recently made his debut performance at Carnegie Hall.

Dodds has attended and performed at many music festivals, including the Tibor Varga Music Festival in Switzerland, the InterHarmony International Music Festival in Germany, the Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival in Florida, the Meadowmount School of Music in NY, the Horowitz Music Academy in Ukraine, and the Baltimore International Piano Festival.

In addition to his work as a classical pianist, Dodds is also a composer and founding member of the new music duo – Early Gray – who toured the East Coast this summer with music from their debut album Paint the Windows. Coming up, Early Gray will be opening several concerts for Gabriel Kahane in North Carolina.
