Overview

Hi, there! My name is Marty and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching In-Home private piano lessons since 1987 and have loved helping my students learn and enjoy the piano. I completed my Humber College degree in Piano Performance in 1994. I'm a performer at the dueling piano shows in Las Vegas and fun person. My teaching style is modern and inspiring. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Piano Bar Entertainer

Marty Gast

A love for music, singing, people, and a good laugh characterize Marty Gast. He naturally rises to become the life of the party. Fluent in many styles and idioms and full of surprises, Marty's presentation covers all of the most popular hits from the 50’s to today’s Top Ten.

Marty has been entertaining full time for the past 15 years on land and sea. At Aussie Rules Dueling Pianos in Calgary, he was glad to share their legendary stage with the best piano bar entertainers in Canada. His job has taken him around the world from the piano bars of a Carnival "Fun" ship to the Regatta Bar on the luxury yacht “The World of Residensea”.

Marty brings it all together to continue spreading the Party, having made his pilgrimage to Las Vegas. It is there where his wife Holly has held the fort for over 6 years now. She is the celebrity greeter at McCarran International Airport and is presently expecting their first child.

Most recently, Marty has broken the threshold of his long-time aspirations: performing regularly at The Piano Bar at Harrah’s and The Bar At Times Square. But no matter where he finds himself, if there’s a piano, a microphone, good cheer and and tasty libations, it’s always a Party with Marty!

I met Marty on one of the Carnival ships. I was a soloist and he was the piano bar entertainer. Marty had the place packed every night while keeping them entertained the whole time. I was amazed by his enthusiasm and piano skills. Did I mention great easy going personality also. He has the experience and knowledge it take to be a great teacher.

I just had a few informal lessons with Marty. He enthuses you, engages. He has a genuine love of music and people that engages you and makes it fun.I'm not technical and yes, a bit fat fingered truth be told but he brings out the joy in the piano and in singing and quite candidly, having a good time. I think he worked me out pretty quickly and saw what teaching method worked for me, He's definitely very technically able as well but as that is not really my ability, he played to my strengths and built my confidence in other areas from there. Thanks Marty from Peter Gibbs
