About Justin P.

Justin is an active performer in the Metropolitan area. He has worked with several different music acts. He has lead rock groups, once opening for the famous Jefferson Starship. He has conducted orchestras for musical theater, coordinated and performed church music programs, plays accordion for farmer's markets, restaurants, Oktoberfest, and coffee houses, plays jazz for private events, hotels, weddings, and parties frequently, and studied classical Indian Hindustani music to perform on harmonium and sitar, once even for the Kennedy Center. Justin has been an active educator with kids for most of his live. With more than 13 years of experience, he started volunteering to tutor homeless children in high school. For over 10 years he worked with the Boy Scouts of America, teaching in the nature center and shooting range to eventually running and administrating these camps. Now Justin can focus on teaching what he loves, music. Justin usually keeps a teaching studio of 35-45 students. Every Sunday morning he serves at Saint Matthew’s United Methodist of Annandale playing keyboard for the modern service. Every Monday Justin plays accordion at Tryst Coffee House in Adam’s Morgan 8-10 PM. Every Tuesday afternoon he leads a sing-along at Tall Oaks Assisted Living in Reston.

Justin is not only an incredible piano player, but he is an equally incredible teacher. Really knows his stuff and makes it fun. One of his strengths is his versatility - he can play and teach just about any style of music. This allows his to tailor his lessons to fit each student's specific interests.
