Adrian Edward | Piano Instructor
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and moving to New York at an early age, Adrian received his Bachelors in Music Performance from Hunter College and also his M.M.E(Masters in Music Education) K-12 from Hunter as well.
Having had the privilege of receiving training from some of the best teachers in New York City, I have always been interested in teaching and passing on some of the instruction I was fortunate enough to receive over the years. Although I enjoy working with children, I feel equally as comfortable with adults who have always wanted to start playing an instrument or simply want to take up their instruments again.
I have been performing and playing live as far back as I can remember and know the joys that come from playing an instrument and love to share that passion whenever I give piano lessons and guitar classes.
My goal is to teach you the style that you want to learn and find out what you expect to get out of your piano lessons. We will work together to develop the perfect music path for you or your child and make sure to reach those goals while keeping it very fun.
I look forward to teaching you how to play piano and helping you enjoy the world of music.
Q&A with Adrian
What instruments do you play?
Although my favorite instrument is the piano, I also play guitar, bass, drums, clarinet, a little violin and I can play a mean shaker.
Who are your musical influences?
Classical was my first love so composers like Chopin, Liszt, Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn are definitely on the list. As for contemporaries, I have been influenced by Sting, Peter Gabriel, Prince, Maroon 5 and Dave Matthews to name a few.
What was your favorite gig?
Played a show at the BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and it was an electrifying night. Everything was just working perfect, the musicians were playing their best and it was a night I will never forget.
Is there an instrument that you still want to learn?
Yes, playing the violin well is on my bucket list for sure.
What is the key, in your opinion to learning a new instrument effectively?
You have to be patient, be a good listener and above all, be dedicated to your instrument.
