About Me

I am private music teacher who has been teaching on a full time basis for the last 15 years. I teach piano, voice and bagpipes. I am originally from California and moved here in 1980. I met my wife at Westminster Choir College in Princeton NJ when we were both students. She is also a musician. In our 31 years of marriage we have served a number churches in the area she as the Choir Director and Organist and I as the Bass Section Leader. We ran the Young Singers of Pennsylvania, a Children's Chorus for 9 years where she was the Director and I was the Accompanist.

I started playing the piano at 11 which I thought was 3 years too late. I was actually ready to start at 8 but it took 3 years of nagging to get a piano. I was totally addicted by 12 and practiced 2 hours per day as a kid until I graduated from High School. I loved Beethoven and Chopin and still do. I discovered the Bagpipes as Sophomore in High School and added an hour a day of practice on to my schedule. I competed in Bagpipes up to the Grade 1 level in the Pacific Coast Pipe Band Association back in the 70's.

I was very lucky to have studied with some truly great people who were partially responsible for keeping my piano interest alive. I was very motivated to play and be accomplished.

This is my 20th year in business.  I love teaching people. My students range in age from 8 to 70. I'm not picky. I'll teach anyone that sincerely wants to learn. I specialize in Rhythm Training and sight reading.

My Musical Education Background

Here is my musical background:

Piano lessons from age 11.
Bagpipe lessons from 15.
Voice lessons from age 18.

I studied music at:
Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, CA
Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ
Chapman University in Orange, CA

I make it a habit to still practice everyday as I am very lucky to be able to do this for a living.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I specialize in beginners to intermediate for piano, voice and bagpipes.

Gary, As I said last week, lessons have been great. I didn't expect such a positive and motivating experience, and I am excited about my next step....joining a band. I will let you know how I progress. Thanks for everything. I look forward to keeping in touch. Pat
