Student Reviews

Naples, FL

Mr. Sorce was my piano teacher for a very short period of time in my very hectic and long ago senior year of high school. I was a terrible student, scattered in many directions and undisciplined. Despite this Mr. Sorce was able to impart on me the fundamental tools that I needed to understand Jazz harmony and chord extensions in order to build my vocabulary and try to play the things I heard in my head. I’m still working on things he taught me 40 years later… its a lifetime pursuit, I might never get there but I’m still trying, thanks !
