About John

Born and raised in Florence, SC, John Hoffmeyer was first introduced to music through the sounds of church hymns on Sunday mornings. After receiving his first piano lessons from his grandmother, John went on to study with Heather-Lynne Shannon, Linda Mackenzie, and Dr. Benjamin Woods. He matriculated to Phillips Academy in 2012, studying with Professor Alexander Korsantia at the New England Conservatory. John received a Bachelor of Arts from Princeton University in Comparative Literature with a minor in Piano Performance. His major teachers at Princeton were Francine Kay and Robert Taub. Since 2019, John has studied with Pascal Nemirovski while completing his MPhil in Modern Languages at Oxford University.

John has performed extensively in America and abroad, including appearances at Jordan Hall, the Rose Studio at Lincoln Center, and the historic Teatro dell’Osservanza in Imola, Italy. While in Imola, John was a semifinalist for the Imola City Award and studied under Franco Scala and Enrico Pace. John has further had lessons and masterclasses with Leon Fleisher, Arie Vardi, and Katherine Chi, and has appeared as soloist with a number of orchestras, including the Florence Symphony Orchestra, the Princeton Sinfonia, and the Orchestra Giovanile Napolinova. This fall, John will begin his PhD in Comparative Literature at Yale as an A. Bartlett Giamatti Fellow while continuing to pursue his pianistic career.
