Iravati Mangunkusumo Sudiarso (born in 1937, in Surabaya) is one of Indonesia's most respected musical figures. Famous throughout Indonesia as a pianist and teacher, Sudiarso has produced successful generations of pianists for more than forty years. With her professionalism and idealism in teaching, combined with endless dedication, Sudiarso has guided many students to achieve high artistry and taste in piano playing. The author had the privilege of studying with Iravati Sudiarso from 1996 through 2000, an experience which brought personal knowledge of her teaching.;Several of Sudiarso's students have composed music dedicated to her, but no one has written a comprehensive study of her teaching legacy. In addition to describing Sudiarso's influence on piano playing throughout Indonesia, this study will analyze piano pieces written by two of her other former students in honor of Sudiarso: "Citra," by Dr. Johannes S. Nugroho; and "Happy Birthday," by Levi Gunardi.
