" At a young age he improvising smooth, cool grooves over Bach inventions; now a pianist and composer whose music has been heard all over the world through radio, internet, TV "
Judson Hurd grew up in the beautiful country of Paraguay, at an early age he was deeply influenced and mesmerized by this simple way of living. At the age four he stumbled across his mother's childhood piano. His first 'teacher' was an old instrumental piano cassette a missionary couple left after leaving the country. The expressive, folk, piano vibrations of Philip Aaberg (Judson's childhood idol) and the simple, romantic Latin culture had a creative impact on his music.
After years of being self taught and improvising smooth, cool grooves over Bach inventions his family moved to Ciudad Del Este where he began his formal studies at the Franz Schubert Conservatory. At the age of 12 Judson Hurd rose to be one of the prominent youth pianists of Paraguay. He went on to study music theory and composition at Young Harris College and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Music .
