Dr. McVey was a top prizewinner in the International Beethoven Competition (U.S.A.), and was a Semi-Finalist at the International Franz Liszt Competition in Poland, where critics praised his “passionate artistry and electrifying virtuosity.” His latest CD recording, from 2016, is entitled Ten Fingers and features music by Mozart, Chopin, Gareth Farr, Joaquin Rodrigo, and others. In addition to his solo performances, Dr. McVey was a founding member of the Trio St. Croix, and regularly collaborates as a chamber musician.

An active clinician, Roger frequently gives master-classes and presentations at universities, music schools, and for music teacher associations. He is an adjudicator for the Washington State Music Teachers Association, and is a board member of the Idaho Music Teachers Association. He has presented at the College Music Society national conference, as well as for the Wisconsin Music Teachers Association and other groups. An avid fan of rock music, jazz, and hip-hop, Roger’s non-musical interests include cooking, playing chess, reading, surfing, and skiing. For more information, please visit his website at
