Artemy Mukhin (*2005) is a composer, performer, and student at the Special Music School. Born in Boston he currently lives in New York City.
Artemy writes music characterized by “lovely organic flow” and “depth of feeling”. His compositions combine colorful harmony and texture with resonating melody, creating a sound-world that ranges from dark and melancholic to vibrant.
Artemy is honored to have had his compositions read by many acclaimed musicians and at such a young age. You too can listen to his music performed by Metropolitan Opera soprano Lucy Shelton, renowned pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, harpist Bridget Kibbey, violinist David Fumer, Metropolitan Orchestra timpanist Jason Haaheim, chamber groups PUBLIQuartet, International Contemporary Ensemble, and Brooklyn Brass Quintet.
Artemy is very grateful to his fellow students and teachers at New York Youth Symphony , Mannes School of Music and New York Philharmonic Very Yong Composers for their friendship, dedication and multiple opportunities this has created. These creative collaborations have culminated with multiple music awards, chamber performances and often premieres of Artemy’s work.
In response to COVID-19 pandemic Artemy created Music Buddies program at his K-12 Special Music School in which high schoolers helped K-5 students with practice tips. These sessions increased kids motivation to practice, broadened their music horizons and provided a much needed connection between the Lower and High School. Two of Artemy’s students started improvisation and dipped their toes in composition as the result. Music Buddies program was a direct response to parents who asked for help with demanding music standards and practicing in the remote setting.
Artemy is a competitive nationally ranked squash player.
