About this pro

My passion for piano began at age 5 - first teacher retired faculty from Julliard School I have studied with some of the finest teachers in the world and a Music Puano Performance major at Ga State University.   I believe the student should have a balance of materials that keep it interesting fun and also challenging for their development. I perform a multitude of styles and enjoys music in most all forms-from Classical to Popular to Jazz.

I love seeing the joy in students faces when they see what they are caoable of musically!

    Worked with George for some years andirons must say, he took my daughter from beginner to intermediate and she had fun doing it. His structured approach helped to guide and hone her skills, and she was doing recitals before long. He’s very good with kids, and is a fine professional!

    George has a very easy teaching style to follow in the lesson. I feel that I can improve a great deal by continuing with him. He is undoubtedly a very skilled pianist and the best out there as far a piano teachers.
