Biography[edit]

Trick began playing piano at the age of five.[2] Her interest outside of classical music began at the age of 10, when her piano teacher introduced her to ragtime.[3] She received her BA in Music with honors from University of Chicago in 2009.[2]

She demonstrates piano performance and composition styles of stride, ragtime and jazz piano from the 1900s to the 1940s.[4] She emphasizes jazz standards, stride and boogie-woogie tunes with an accent on her specialty of Harlem stride.[5]
