A native of New Jersey, ragtime pianist Ethan Uslan makes his home in Charlotte, NC. He is a three-time winner of the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest and has performed across the USA, Europe, and Cyberspace, where his jazzed-up rendition of Beethoven’s Fur Elise went viral with more than 1.6 million views:  Aside from solo work, Ethan has appeared with symphony orchestras, jazz bands, improv comedy groups, and even a clown show. He began studying classical piano at the age of 9 in his hometown of South Orange, NJ. As a teenager, he took jazz piano lessons and in college (Indiana University) he studied classical piano and musicology. At some point in college, Ethan had a musical identity crisis. He still loved Bach and Beethoven, but he realized he didn’t want to devote his life to classical music. Something about ragtime and early jazz was luring him in. Something about the rhythms, the harmonies, the catchy melodies, and the improvisations brought him joy. So Ethan embarked on a plan to figure out how to play ragtime and early jazz styles. And he hasn’t looked back since. To learn more about Ethan, visit his website:
