About Me

I am a nurturing, positive and patient teacher to all ages and levels. I have over 25 years of teaching experience. I believe that studying music helps develop many skills such as discipline, dedication, and perseverance. Learning to play the piano helps increase one's self-esteem, physical coordination, fine motor skills and concentration.

My Musical Education Background

Iris Perry, pianist, has performed to high acclaim as a recitalist, chamber musician, and soloist with orchestras throughout Austria, Holland, Israel, Romania, former Soviet Republics and the United States. A prizewinner of international piano competitions including the Stravinsky Awards and Young Keyboard Artists Association International Piano Competitions, Iris has also received the Yale University Bruce Simonds Scholarship Award for outstanding performance in solo and chamber literature as well as a PBD Foundation Music Scholarship. Strongly committ ed to music education, Iris has taught at Yale, Indiana andMontclair State Universities, Bergen Community College and the Thurnauer School of Music at the JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly, NJ. Iris is presently completing a Doctorate of Music from Indiana University, and holds a Master of Music from Yale University and a Bachelor of Music from Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University. She maintains a private studio and lives in River Edge with her husband and two sons.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I believe that learning classical music serves as the best foundation in learning to play the piano, however, if the student desires to study other styles, I will accommodate, after the student has achieved a satisfactory level in playing classical music.
