Play the piano like a pro in no time. Connect with an expert piano player today!
I have studied piano performance for ten years and have three years of experience teaching students at beginner through high-school levels. My classes are unique because I have observed and studied various methods and artistic schools, sometimes denominated “pianistic schools,” throughout my personal artistic formation. I continuously work to improve my own teaching methods through the compilation of the most scientifically correct ways to approach piano playing. In addition, I am aware of the stylistic traditions of the greatest classical repertoire. Therefore, I guarantee an enrichment of performance ideas for advanced performers who possess a highly developed musical mindset and who are interested in pursuing further education in conservatoires throughout the USA and the rest of the world.
About Salvador A.

I am a Mexican concert pianist. I just finished my BM at Roosevelt University. I was born in 1995 in Toluca (Mexico), my first musical approach was at 11 years old at the “Casa de Cultura de Tecualoyan” at Villa Guerrero (México). At fourteen years old, I started my studies at the Escuela Superior Diocesana de Música Sacra de Toluca (Superior Diocesan School of Sacred Music of Toluca) where I started my professional musical education. Two years later, I won the 7th Interpretative Competition Pbro. Antonio Morales Manzo and I had the opportunity to debut as a piano soloist with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Toluca. I have participated in national and international piano competitions in Mexico and Costa Rica involving the "VII International Piano Competition Maria Clara Cullell 2013”, "VII National Competition for Young Pianists Parnassós 2014" (Third Prize), "4th National and International Competition José Jacinto Cuevas" (Finalist), “11th International Piano Festival and Competition for Children and Youth Pianists Villahermosa 2015” (Third Prize). In 2015 I was accepted at the Chicago College of Performing Arts of the Roosevelt University where I just received my B.M. degree in Piano Performance. In March 2016, I premiered “Anxiety” a piano composition of the American composer Justus Richardson in Ganz Hall of Roosevelt University. In June 2016, I was invited to perform a series of recitals for the “12th International Festival and Piano Competition for Children and Youth Pianists Villahermosa 2016”, and in September 2016, I was honored with the “2016-17 Margaret Clayton Smith Award” from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. In January 2017 I was honored as "Distinguished Citizen" for my efforts in the field of classical music by the municipal government of Villa Guerrero, Mexico (My hometown). In March 2017, I was auditioned for the Luminarts Fellowship at the Chicago Union League Club. In April 2017 I participated in the CCPA Soloist Concerto Competition held at Roosevelt University. My live performances have been broadcasted over the Mexico State Radio and Television and the TV Tabasqueña (Mexico) networks. Besides piano playing, I took formal training as a singer and I received the "Laurea de Primer Nivel" degree from the Escuela Superior Diocesana de Musica Sacra de Toluca. As a baritone, I have performed numerous times in ensemble and soloistic settings. I debuted in the opera The Barber of Seville by Giacomo Rossini with the Philarmonic Orchestra of Toluca. Besides music, my hobbies are French-speaking and cooking with my wife.
