Dennis has been in the music scene for the last 25+ years.

He holds a B.A. in Music from Portland Bible College and as a professional pianist he has taken on other musical roles; such as composition, arranging, and producer on many recording projects.

Dennis has something to offer to all that want to learn how to play the piano. Whether it's learning for fun, or pursuing piano passionately; his method of teaching is one that will stick with you.

"Playing piano is a lifetime experience; whether you do it professionally or for your own enjoyment, you will always learn something new. My hope is to pass along what I've learned to every student that I have the opportunity to teach."
- Dennis Miclau.
