Born in Wausau, Wisconsin in 1938, Warren was exposed to music and to the piano at an early age. His father Lawrence was a pianist and teacher and a close friend to other pianists, among them the Russian virtuoso Joseph Lhevinne, who actually gave Warren his very first training at the keyboard. At the age of five, Warren's family relocated to New York City where Warren immediately began serious study of the classical piano literature with well-known pianists Sascha Gorodonitzki, Miklos Schwalb and Herbert Stessin, as well as with his father.
