Overview

I am classical pianist and educator residing in the United States since 2005. I hold a Masters Degree and Artist Diploma in Piano Performance with a Certificate in Piano Pedagogy from Carnegie Mellon University and Performance Diplomas from L'École Normale in France and Accademia Chigiana in Italy. Trained in various schools of piano playing, I combine these methods within my own teaching. As every student is different, I approach them all individually according to their own unique hand shape, skill level, and motivation/goals. I worked with students of all ages and skill levels since 1996, having thus far worked with students from the age of four to eighty-two. My teaching is mainly focused on classical music and I use both solfège and the English letter system for reading the notes depending on individual preference. I am comfortable teaching in English, Spanish, Italian and French.

My daughter and I have been taking lessons with Pedro for 3 years now, and he is by far the best piano teacher that I have ever had...and I've worked my way through a lot of teachers. His knowledge of the repertoire and technique is unmatched, and he goes above and beyond to make sure that I understand the assignment. This is key - with so many teachers in the past I would find myself lost in the days after the lesson as to what I was supposed to be doing. Not with Pedro. He is very clear and always finds a way to communicate his point. Besides from being a fantastic pianist, he is also a very kind and generous person. He is easy to talk to and a wonderful human being. My daughter really appreciates this - he is demanding, but also very nurturing. He has our highest recommendation!
